In 1933, Clark was called to serve as second counselor to President Heber J. Grant in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The J. Reuben Clark Law School at BYU is named in Clark's honor. The L. Tom Perry Special Collections is the repository of the J. Reuben Clark papers.

Utah Archives Month is an annual event sponsored by archives and special collections across Utah. Archives Month events and lectures document Utah’s political history, public policy and archives. Archives showcased include academic, private, corporate, religious and governmental repositories.
