Clyde E. Wilson, 90, of Oliver Springs, died Monday, March 4, 2002, at Methodist Medical Center of Oak Ridge after an extended illness.

Born March 21, 1911, in Green Forest, Ala., he was the son of Ollie and Kit Carson Wilson.

Mr. Wilson was raised on a farm in Northeast Arkansas and remained an avid cattleman all his life. He earned his bachelor's degree in political science in 1933 and a law degree in 1936, both from the University of Arkansas.

As a young assistant district attorney in Madison County, Ark., he faced gangsters and political corruption, his family said. Turned out by a Depression-era election, Mr. Wilson headed west, harvesting prunes and potatoes, and working as a carpenter on the construction of the Shasta Dam in California, a naval base in Sitka, Alaska, and at the nuclear reservation in Hanford, Wash.

He came to Oak Ridge as a carpenter but soon found professional employment with the Atomic Energy Commission, a Department of Energy predecessor agency where he worked from 1946 to 1965.

Mr. Wilson was interested in everything, his family said. He had an avid interest in current events, and in the last few months, he became a keen observer of Middle Eastern politics and affairs. His family said he had a great love of 19th century poetry, especially poems with classic themes of character and courage. He also had a great sense of humor and could be counted on to produce an appropriate joke or story to punctuate a conversation.

His family said his faith gave him strength in difficult times. Mr. Wilson found solace in his favorite Bible verse, Psalm 118:24. Toward this end, he maintained a positive attitude and perpetual involvement with those around him, despite debilitating medical difficulties late in life.

He is survived by his wife, Ruby Wilson; his son, Robert Wilson and his wife, Jeannie, of Knoxville; his daughter, Mary Aceves of Martinez, Ga.; his brother, Paul Wilson and his wife, Elaine, of Fairland, Okla.; two grandchildren, Jonathan Aceves and Elena Aceves, both of Martinez; two step-grandchildren, Katie Bowers and Jonathan Bowers, both of Knoxville; and one great-grandson, Isaiah LeBlanc of Martinez.
