Gordon Road

Named in honor of distinguished alumnus Albert H. Gordon (AB 1923, MBA 1925), Gordon Road commemorates Gordon’s legendary Harvard support.

He served on numerous committees at Harvard University. His contributions to the business world earned him an honorary doctorate in 1977 and an Alumni Association Medal from Harvard University in 1984. At HBS, he served on the Board of Directors of the Associates, on the Visiting Committee, on several reunion gift campaigns, and as a Class Notes secretary for the Alumni Bulletin. Over the years, Gordon’s gifts to HBS highlight his various interests—from contributing to the professorship created in honor of his friend and classmate George E. Bates, to supporting physical fitness, to helping purchase an organ for the Class of 1959 Chapel. He was one of the first recipients of the School’s highest honor, the Distinguished Service Award, bestowed on him in 1968. As a tribute to Gordon, the School established the Albert H. Gordon Professorship of Business Administration, in 1995.
