Charles Gordon scrapbook

Charles Gordon scrapbook
Date: 1945-1991 (bulk 1945-1956)
This scrapbook documents the athletic activities of Topekan Charles (Chick) Gordon, primarily during the period 1945-1951. During that time, Gordon was a standout athlete first at Topeka High School, then at Washburn University. He excelled at both basketball and baseball. In basketball, he lettered twice at Topeka High, and was on Washburn's varsity team all four of his college years. At both schools, Gordon was captain of the basketball team his senior year. In his final season at Washburn (1950-51), he led the team in scoring with 319 points, and played a key role in helping the Ichabods secure the Central Intercollegiate Conference league championship. In baseball, he lettered twice at Topeka High and pitched a no-hitter to win the state baseball championship with the Trojans in 1947. He was on the Washburn squad the three years in which the school fielded a baseball team while he was a student. Gordon also was a member of two state championship American Legion baseball teams (1945 and 1946), as well as the pennant-winning Abilene Ikes of the Amateur Baseball League of America (1949). In 1950, he was named the MVP of the state semi-pro baseball tournament in Wichita after recording four tourney wins pitching for the Topeka Decker Oilers. Upon graduating from college, Gordon taught and coached in Topeka schools until 1968, when the family relocated to Tampa, Florida. He pursued a career in educational counseling and worked 23 years as the coordinator of undergraduate advising for the University of South Florida. Digital reproduction of the scrapbook was accomplished through a joint project sponsored by the Kansas Historical Society and the Shawnee County Baseball Hall of Fame.
