Biography

Guy Clarkson was a graduate of Toronto University but, having graduated in 1913, he was from an earlier generation of hockey players than the Toronto team that represented Canada in the 1924 Olympics. Clarkson arrived in England to study chemistry at the University of Leeds and soon became one of the foremost players in the country. After service in World War One he returned to playing and was a member of an unofficial British team that won the Bouvier Cup in St. Moritz in 1920. In Chamonix Clarkson was player-coach of the British team although it seems he did not see much time on the ice. He met his wife whilst in England and worked as an engineer for her father's steel company. As his wife was Jewish he decided to move back to Canada after visiting Vienna in 1938 in the aftermath of the Anschluss.

Clarkson founded a printing company in Buffalo, USA which later became a successful publicly held corporation.
