U.S. Representative Ed Royce (R-Fullerton) issued the following statement on the passing of former California State University, Fullerton President Dr. Milton Gordon:

“Marie and I were saddened to learn of Dr. Gordon’s passing.  I first met Milt more than 20 years ago, when he was in his first years as president at Cal State Fullerton, my alma mater.  As a State Senator, and then as a Member of Congress, I worked closely with Milt and deeply admired his commitment to improving access to education for all.  Milt transformed CSUF from a regional school to a global one with his vision to help students pursue intellectual, cultural and economic dreams far beyond Orange County. Throughout his life, Milt’s determination shattered racial barriers, inspiring so many others.  Yet for all his achievements, I will always remember Milt, first and foremost, as a very good friend.  Our prayers are with Marge, their sons Patrick, Michael and Vincent, and the entire CSUF community.”
