User:MaynardClark is Maynard S. Clark of Boston. and Maynard (dot) Clark (at) gmail (dot) com

Maynard S. Clark of Boston has been featured in Marquis's Who's Who since the early 1990s, presumably because of his visionary early-adopter use of new technologies in advancing vegetarianism, vegetarian ideas, and the participatory development of vegetarian community, activities, and social culture. He has been listed also in several Who's Who volumes by competitors of Marquis.

Maynard S. Clark of Boston is employed by the Harvard Medical School of Boston and has been employed there since the 1990s. In the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine, he has served (when GHSM was DSM) on the Green Team, the Website Committee, and the Social Committee and over the years (covering two decades) has volunteered for various special projects and events.

He is also Program Manager for the annual Ethical Issues in Global Health Research course in the Department of Global Health and Population in the Harvard School of Public Health, previously known as the HSPH Department of Population and International Health. EIGHR was begun in 1999 with a 2-year grant from the National Institutes of Health to Dr. Richard A. Cash, a medical doctor teaching in GHP who is famous for developing oral rehydration therapy (aka ORT) in the developing world, with the 3rd party claim that Dr. Cash's ORT has saved more lives less glamorously and less expensively than all HIV work today. The intensive summer course draws from the developed and developing world medical experts involved with designing, conducting, supervising, funding, or approving health research across several nations.

For both jobs, he is seated physically in the Francis Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health & Human Rights at 651 Huntington Avenue in Boston, Massachusetts, near Brigham Circle.

Previously, Maynard had since the turn of the century been Senior Production Coordinator for the Tape Transcription Center, owned by The Skill Bureau, a 40+-year old staffing agency in the heart of Boston.

Before attending graduate school at Harvard in Cambridge, where he became vegetarian then vegan (he has continued being vegan for over half his natural life now), he was designated a "most widely-read undergraduate" while at California State University in Hayward (CSUH has since become CSUEB, California State University, East Bay).

As a vegetarian community organizer and planner and developer of events, he helped (with several national vegetarian organizations) to organize several national, continental, and international-scale vegetarian events, such as the 8th International Vegan Festival (in San Diego, CA, in 1995), the Great American Meatout (organized by FARM, where he was regional or national outreach coordinator for several years in a row around the late '80s and early '90s), and the 1996 World Vegetarian Congress (held with NAVS in Johnstown, PA). He also developed the groundwork for the Boston Vegetarian Food Festival, organizing a team and helping directing its first several years of development, before passing the event over to the Boston Vegetarian Society, an organization which he ALSO founded in the mid-1980s. Further, during the late 1990s and the turn of the 21st century, he laid the groundwork of networking, which eventually emerged as the Christian Vegetarian Association (CVA) in 2002, after Rev. Frank L. Hoffman of New York developed the website portal, which hosts a CVA mirror site.

He is currently Executive Director of the Vegetarian Resource Center, based in Cambridge, MA, an all-volunteer organization, where he serves without financial compensation, and he hosts the Boston Vegan Meetup and the Boston Vegetarian Meetup, local social networking groups respectively for vegans and vegetarians, often attracting newcomers to two who are looking for veg*an connections; these 'tire kickers' are welcomed and then encouraged to network both immediately (in the Meetups) and also in local vegetarian and/or related interest, networking, activist, and/or social groups). He is also Volunteer Coordinator of the Boston Vegan Association.

He is an avid sudoku player and loves classical music, vegan whole foods cooking, particularly the LIGHT cooking (and even non-heated preparation) of vegetables, Facebook, blogging, meticulous recycler, and digital photography. He traveled to India in September 2006 for the IVU's 37th World Vegetarian Congress in Goa, after which he vege-toured three of India's many states: Goa, Karnataka, and Maharashtra (where Mumbai/Bombay is located).

He is an avid MBTA rider and advocate of public transportation. Until recently, he interviewed regional and local celebrities, newsmakers, and significant social contributors on his talking heads TV show, "Monday Night Live" on MATV. MNL had run for a decade as "Malden Public Radio" with Joe Mokler, David D'Arcangelo, and politically-savvy Maldonians; Joseph Mokler had produced a monthly print journal to accompany the weekly MPR TV broadcast of the same name ("Malden Public Radio"), ending that publication around 2000.

He's an aggressive blogger and social media advocate; he's lectured to vegetarian conferences on using these tools. His Facebook friends number over 4200, his LinkedIn contacts nearly 1200, and his blog readership passed a million early in 2009 and are now over 1.2 million.
