Biography: 

Clarence ("pronounced 'Cla'nce,'" 325) Snopes is the half-brother of Montgomery Ward Snopes. After being both a gang leader and a constable as a youth, through the influence of Will Varner he becomes Senator C. Egglestone Snopes, an extremely corrupt and manipulative politician whom the voters of Frenchman's Bend re-elect to the state legislature for twenty-five years. He is both a Baptist "Sunday School" teacher in Jackson (334) and a habitue of the brothels in Memphis. We calculate his date of birth from the narrator saying "he was a little past forty" during the 1946 election campaign (342).
