Clark Adams (1969-2007) was long associated with Internet Infidels, having served as a member of the Board of Directors, Public relations Director, and President. Clark was also the Membership Chair of Halvason, the Humanist Association of Las Vegas and Southern Nevada, AHA's 2002 Chapter of the Year; he was the primary organizer and emcee of the annual July gathering at Lake Hypatia, the largest annual godless gathering in the Southeast; he participated in the Coalition for the Community of Reason and was one of the founders of the new Secular Coalition for America. He has been published in Freethought Today, and in various freethought and humanist newsletters. Clark spoke at an Atheist Alliance convention, at Lake Hypatia several times, and to various local freethought and humanist organizations. Clark characterized himself as a "convention junkie," meaning that he attended the conventions of just about as many freethought/humanist/atheist as he could. He is missed.

Atheists, agnostics and humanists have longed for their own "Stonewall," the rebellion in New York in 1969 which is said to have begun the gay-rights movement. The Godless Americans March on Washington of November 2, 2002 might prove to be that kind of historical event.
