The Philadelphia Botanical Club bestowed Ted Gordon the title of Hononary Member at the May 2016 monthly meeting. The honor is given to long time members such as Ted, who have provided leadership, and dedicated time and efforts to advance to Club goals. Very few members have ever received this title during the 100+ years of the Philadelphia Botanical Club’s history, and we are pleased Ted was a recipient, a well deserved honor indeed.
Ted Gordon is one of the founding members of the Flora of New Jersey Project. He has been an active member of the Philadelphia Botanical Club since 1972. Ted was the Club’s president for twelve years, 1988 to 2000. He served as editor of the field trip reports for Bartonia, covering reports for 1997 through 2014.
