Personal: Gordon is a native Californian, raised in Pasadena and a graduate of Pasadena High School.  In college at San Jose State, he was a member of the Tutorials in Letters and Sciences integrated classics program, a Learning Community founded by Mervyn Cadwallader and John Sperling.  After the Tutorials experiment at Monte Capanno, Gordon graduated from San Jose State (1972) with majors in political science and from the New College of San Jose State.  In 1970, after returning from study and travel in Europe, in Studio City, CA, Gordon married the former Linda Green, daughter of Esther Green (now Gertzman) of Los Angeles.  They made their first homes in the downtown district of San Jose, and Gordon worked for Santa Clara County as a youth recreation leader on the east side of San Jose.  From 1972 to 1977, Gordon and Linda lived in Santa Barbara, where he completed a Ph.D. at the University of California.  The family left California after the passage of Proposition 13 (1978); their two daughters, Jennifer and Lisa, were raised in Oregon, Missouri and Virginia.  Since 1983, the Bowens have made their home in Shenandoah Valley of VirginiaJennifer and Lisa each graduated from the Woodrow Wilson Department of Government and Foreign Affairs at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville.  The family enjoys frequent trips back to California.
