Vern A. Gordon -- born in 1908 in Indiana, and raised in Hammond -- was employed as a chemist. In the mid-1930s, he was scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 41 of Hessville's United Presbyterian church. Troop 41 met Monday evenings in the basement of the church, and often went on trips around the Hammond area, accompanied by Mr. Gordon.
