Note: Princeton Alumni Journal, Vol LXV, No. 1, Sept 23, 1964, p162 has: GORDON CAMPBELL BUCK '35 On March 9 of this year Gordon was killed in an automobile accident, when his car went out of control on the Connecticut Turnpike. The tragedy occurred just week after his 52nd birthday. Gordon joined us freshman year after graduating from Newark Academy. He also had studied at The Hill School. In the middle of sophomore year he left Princeton he married Maryly Crowell of East Orange, from whom he was later divorced. The first activity after leaving Princeton was studying at the Art Student's League in New York to further his extraordinary artistic talent. He then went with the textbook publishing firm of Silver Burdett in New York as a member of their production staff. His home at this time was Short Hills, N.J. In 1943, Gordon went overseas with the Army, participating in the North African campaign and part of the Italian campaign. He was with the Fifth Army as a lieutenant in the field artillery. After suffering wounds in Italy he received a medical discharge. Upon returning to this country ,Gordon became president of Lexol Corporation of Caldwell, N.J., producers of a leather preservative product. He sold his interest in this product in 1963, because his principle interest and hobby, yachting, was of prime concern to him. In recent years, Gordon lived in Essex, Conn., close to the water and his boat. Only a few months ago he became associated with a Connecticut publishing company. Gordon leaves two children, Mrs. George Garrett II of Bala Cynwyd, Pa. and Bruce, a student at the University of Virginia Law School. Also surviving are Mrs. Garrett's two children and a brother Donald, a member of the Class of 1933, of Lake Forrest, Ill. Gordon's classmates extend their deepest sympathy to his family.
