Following his graduation from the University of Toronto, R.M. Clark, B.A. worked as a labourer-teacher for Frontier College. Assigned to the Hudson Bay Railway at Fort Churchill, Manitoba in 1930, Clark worked as a track labourer during the day and taught classes in the evenings and on weekends. That season Clark taught "fractions, decimals, measurements, business forms, [and] geography." He also facilitated group discussions on "shipping and trade, trade and commerce, Canada from wall map, selected readings, [and] daily hygiene." His students were mostly immigrant coworkers who enrolled in his classes to make a better life for themselves.
His Frontier College supervisor (Itinerant Teacher), noted on the 6th of September 1930 that,
Clark as a practical carpenter has made good. He is also esteemed as a teacher among the men.
