American singer and vaudeville performer associated with the Harlem Renaissance in the mid-1920s. He moved to New York City at the age of 17. His career faded after the 1920s, and in 1959 he retired to White Sulphur Springs, where he died on May 5, 1971. In addition to his singing career, Gordon is remembered today for his 1929 autobiography, Born to Be, which recounts his youth as an Afro-American in small-town Montana, and his experiences in 1920s Harlem.
Sy Scholfield quotes "Born to Be" by Taylor Gordon (University of Nebraska Press, 1929), p. 4: "I was born between six and seven o'clock on Saturday morning, April 29th, 1893, at White Sulphur Springs, Montana."
