Charles Gordon Blackadar ’46

Published in Oct. 11, 2006, issue

Gordon died July 16, 2006, at home in Doylestown, Pa.

Born in Plainfield, N.J., he served in the Army as a second lieutenant. After discharge in 1946, he developed a career in municipal real estate, appraising in some 60 New Jersey towns. From 1969 to 1988 he was in real estate investments with Metropolitan Life in New York, serving as vice president. A math whiz, he wrote Dynamic Capitalization, which was published in 1992.

Gordon enjoyed painting landscapes and playing the flute. He moved with his late wife, Virginia, to Doylestown after many years in New Jersey. They raised four children, Glenn, Scott, David, and Laurie. Besides his children, Gordon is survived by his brother, Alfred '42; a sister, Joy; and seven grandchildren. To them all, the class extends its sympathy.
