    Mackenzie Gordon, Jr. (1913-1992) was an invertebrate paleontologist and authority on Carboniferous fossils. He served on the staff United States Geological Survey from c. 1941-1981. Most of his USGS service was with the Paleontology and Stratigraphy Branch. From 1981 until his death he was a research associate of the National Museum of Natural History. This collection documents Gordon's paleontological research; his service with the USGS, including field work; and his professional activities. Materials include correspondence and memoranda arranged chronologically, alphabetically, and by subject; reports on fossils sent to Gordon for identification; subject/project files concerning field work, meetings, conferences, and other professional activities; and files concerning the preparation and publication of manuscripts. Of special interest are files documenting Gordon's service as President of the 9th International Congress of Carboniferous Stratigraphy and Geology in 1971.
