Gordon is a 48 year old High School Math/Computer Programming teacher.
He has been teaching in Wilburton's small rural high school for 23
years. His wife of 25 years, Cindy, is also a teacher -- the 2nd grade
at Wilburton Elementary. They have three children:
Gordon, Jr, 19 and a sophomore at the school of engineering at the
University of Oklahoma. He's also an Eagle Scout. Mike, 15, a true
teenager, is close to getting his Eagle but needs to work on his paper
work. Regina, 4, is a post-40 gift from God.
Gordon got his love for cryptograms from his mother and from a statistics
teacher in college whose hobby was breaking codes. Gordon says, "She
taught me a lot." Gordon started solving on-line two years ago, and
currently solves about 20 puzzles a day. Gordon's email address is:

A couple of pictures just came in from Gordon, taken May 26, 2001.
The first is a ceremony, an Eagle Court of Honor for Gordon's son,
Mike. The second is a pix of Mike pinning an Eagle's Dad pin on Gordon.
