A specialist in American literature, Professor Gordon came to Colorado College as assistant professor of English in 1964. He was promoted to associate professor in 1970 and to full professor in 1977. In 1970, he became both the creator and director of Colorado College's Southwest Studies Program, a position that he held most of the time until his retirement in 1994. One of his chief accomplishments was the establishment of the Colorado College Baca Campus in 1987. Joe Gordon was also an avid tennis player, skier and fly fisherman.
