Remembering Charlie

Charles Gordon - in memoriam

When I first came to Carleton I found a friend in Charlie. He told me that in a place where everyone was brilliant, the best way to distinguish oneself was through kindness. He lived those words, and I only hope I do the same.

Every time I was on campus I would go into Charlie's office and we would talk about architecture, technology, material culture, the relation between social process and the designed product, and cats (oh, how he would have loved Enid Coleslaw!)

His knowledge on these subjects was boundless, and a constant source of inspiration for my own work. He is missed.

Contributions can be made to the Charles Gordon Lectures on Society and Design.
