Clare S. Spackman, MS, OTR (1909–1992), was a pioneer in occupational therapy. She was author and co-editor with Helen Willard of the first comprehensive textbook in occupational therapy, Principles of Occupational Therapy, first published in 1947 (now "Willard & Spackman"). Perhaps less known is her leadership toward establishing WFOT, for which she served as Secretary/Treasurer from 1952 to 1956 and President from 1957 to 1962. She was an active clinician and clinical educator at the Curative Workshop of Philadelphia and an academic educator at the University of Pennsylvania School of Allied Health Professions.
