GORDON, Clarence, author, born in New York City, 28 April, 1835. His ancestor, John, came from Scotland to New Haven, Connecticut, about 1760, and his father was a cotton-merchant. Clarence was graduated at the Lawrence scientific school of Harvard in 1855. He resided chiefly in Savannah. Georgia, till 1860, lived in or near Boston in 1862-'8, and then removed to Newburg, New York, where he still (1887) resides. He was special agent of the United States census bureau in 1879-'83, in charge of the investigation of meat-production in the grazing states, and has since engaged in the real-estate business. He has contributed largely to journals and magazines, and besides his census report (Washington, 1884) has written stories for boys, under the pen name of "Vieux Moustache." These in-elude "Christmas at Under-Tor" (New York, 1864) ; "Our Fresh and Salt Tutors" (1866) ; "Two Lives in One " (1870) ; and " Boarding-School Days" (1873).
