Abstract: We present preliminary results from a Hubble Space Telescope (HST) WFPC2 investigation of spatial and temporal distributions of star clusters in the clumpy irregular galaxy NGC 7673 and the starburst spirals NGC 3310 and Haro 1. We compare the spectral energy distributions of star clusters in the large clumps in NGC 7673 to model calculations of stellar clusters of various ages. We also propose that the presence of super star clusters in clumps seems to be a feature of intense starbursts.
