The patient was treated at the scene and transported to CIMC for further treatment. The Claude Gordon Dance Band was the first to appear at the Catalina Casino Ballroom after the end of World War II. Gordon and his band contin- ued to perform on the Island up until 1984. Photographs of them can be seen and their recordings can be heard in the Island's muse- um within the Casino building. The late trumpet virtuoso recently was posthumously assigned a place of recognition in the John Philip Sousa Music Library at the University of Illi- nois, Urbana Champaign. The Claude Gordon Collection now resides in the American Music Big Band Era. Rock 'n roll had by then taken over most of the radio and television musical shows. Noted composer and Big Band Leader, Billy May, wrote several arrangements for the Gordon Orchestra including "Brassman's Holiday," a piece especially writ- ten for the technical trumpet-play- ing skills Gordon commanded. The Gordon Orchestra made guest appearances on Dick Clark's "American Bandstand", the "Lawrence Weik Show" and regular appearances at the Holly- wood Palladium and Catalina Casino Ballroom from the 60's through the 80's. Claude Gordon was a resident of Big Bear Lake until his death in 1996. For 30 years he piloted his private plane across the coun- try, from Catalina Island and Canada to various engagements other bands and orchestras to win the title "The Nation's Best New Dance Band."

In Although Claude never had a 1959, his orchestra beat out 200 hit recording, you can still hear some of his musicianship in TV re-runs like "I Love Lucy." In recognition for his accom- plishments as a comprehensive educator and instrument designer, La Sierra University awarded Gordon with an honorary doctorate degree in the field of Music and Letters in 1992. Gordon wrote 11 music method books in both treble and bass clef and annotat- ed the international trumpet manuals of Araban's Complete Conservatory Method for Trumpet and Saint-Jacome's Complete Method for Trumpet or Cornet. He is also recognized as the "worlds fore- most authority on brass playing." His students are currently among the most accomplished musicians in the field. The Claude Gordon method books are published in five lan- guages by Carl Fischer and are circulated throughout the world. The Claude Gordon Collection consists of personal papers, dis- course outlines, manuscripts, brass instruments, recordings and brass playing books.
