SHEFFIELD — In the summer of 1961, Bill Clark received a phone call that he would never forget.

At the age of 19, Clark, a resident of Sheffield, was asked to come interview for a seasonal bellhop position by the manager of the Red Lion Inn, in Stockbridge.

At the time, Clark was self-admittedly shy and bashful, he says, but he accepted the position and took on the opportunity of greeting guests at the door of the longstanding lodging establishment. He started the job the next day at 7 a.m.

“After the interview, when I told my father I was to start the next morning, he just shook his head in disbelief,” said Clark. “He didn’t think I could manage it.”
