Hybridizer Charles P. Gordon (1896-1968)

Denver, Colorado, USA

Charles P. Gordon, RVP of Region 20, passed away February 8. He had surgery on January 4, and appeared to be doing well, but early in February took a turn for the worse. Many will remember "Chuck" as the RVP in charge at the convention last year at Denver. This term was his second as RVP, he having held the same post in 1959-1961. He was a popular Regional officer, and did a superlative job through two national conventions at Denver. Many who did not know him did know him through his introductions, especially ABOVE ALL, which was his pride and joy. Chuck was a retired advertising executive, and was a major in the Air Corp in World War II. His wife, one daughter and two grandchildren survive him. [AIS Bulletin, No. 189(April 1968)]
