Professor Reverend William Robinson Clark FRSC, was a Scottish-Canadian theologian. In 1882, aged about 53, he emigrated to Canada and became the Professor of Mental and Moral Philosophy at Trinity College, Toronto, Ontario (from 1883 to 1908). He was noted as a lecturer and preacher. He was also Professor of Theology at Toronto University. He resigned his chair in the college in 1909, after occupying it for twenty-five years. From that date to the time of his death he held the title of Emeritus Professor and as such he sat ex officio on the Council of Trinity College. He was described as one of the foremost theologians in North America, and there are records of him delivering lectures in Michigan, USA.
