Alda Clark is one of Maryland’s great equestriennes.The Year of the Howard County Woman kicks off our yearlong celebration with our founder:

Alda Tyson Hopkins Clark (1891 – 1969)

The benefactress and founder of the Howard County Historical Society, Alda Hopkins Clark purchased the First Presbyterian Church in the historic district in 1958 to serve as the home of the Historical Society and as a memorial for her distinguished husband, Judge James Clark, Sr.

Alda Tyson Hopkins was born at White Hall in 1891, one of five children born to Samuel and Martha Tyson Smith Hopkins.
She was a descendant of the prominent Hopkins, Tyson and Ellicott families. She attended the exclusive private school Arlington Institute of Virginia and the balance of her education was provided by her mother and governesses. Mrs. Clark’s varied accomplishments clearly speak of her many talents and multiple interests. Among her many talents, she was one of the first women in Howard County to drive a car in the early 1900s.

From a young age, her love of horses led her to a career in thoroughbred horse breeding and riding. She was a “hands on” trainer and groomed some of the finest race horses in Maryland. In 1930, she founded the Howard County Hunt Club and held many events at her home at Keewaydin and Doughoregan Manor. She married James Clark, Sr. a renowned lawyer and Judge in Howard County. Judge Clark bought Keewaydin for Alda to raise and breed horses. She had four sons with Judge Clark – James, Jr., John, Joseph and Samuel.

Her passion for horses led her to write the book “Hold Hard” which documents her life in horse breeding, horse shows and riding. It was also reflected in her artistic ability in ceramics which echoes her love for the hunt club life. Her artistic talents extended to painting many scenic paintings of Ellicott City.

As a child I showed my pony at Doughoregan Manor. What a marvelous estate and an experience I will always remember.

Hunted at Doughoregan.

I’m pretty sure my Mom bought her hunt horse as a 2 year old from Alda Clark back in the mid 60’s, and has the Hold Hard book, which is so good you have to read it all in one sitting!
