Alfred James Clark was born in United States. Alfred James Clark, who amassed his fortune by building one of the largest private construction companies in the country, died in March 2015 from congestive heart failure. He was 87 years old. Although his Clark Enterprises also dabbles in real estate and private equity, the bulk of the company's nearly $4.5 billion (revenues) comes from its extensive portfolio of large-scale construction projects -- including pro sports venues like FedEx Field, prisons, airports, military bases, university buildings and museums. The company is hard at work on a $1.2 billion joint-venture rail expansion project that will connect downtown Washington, D.C. with Dulles International Airport and beyond. Clark was a big proponent of engineering education. As a young man he wanted to study the subject at Cornell; he couldn't afford it and instead commuted to study at the University of Maryland. In 1950 he joined a small construction company working for $65 per week; by the late 1960s he was CEO of what today is Clark Construction. He gave $15 million in 1994 to create the A. James Clark School of Engineering at his alma mater, and in 2011 gave $8 million to fund engineering scholarships at George Washington University.
