    Bigraphy: Short, Gordon Herbert (1912 - 1959)
    Bigraphy: Short, Gordon Herbert (1912 - 1959)
    SHORT, GORDON HERBERT (1912-1959), press photographer, was born on 23 April 1912 at Petersham, Sydney, youngest of four children of Herbert George Short, a civil servant from England, and his native-born wife Lilian, n?e Greer. Gordon attended Stanmore Public School and in 1928 became a messenger in the pictorial department of the Sydney Morning Herald. Known as 'Shorty', he formally began a cadetship in 1930 and moved quickly from the duties of the darkroom into general photography. He covered the 1934 royal tour of the Duke of Gloucester, from Melbourne to Sydney. His photograph of the duke opening the Anzac Memorial in Hyde Park was the largest photograph that the Herald had ever published, wrapped around the entire paper. As the 1930s advanced so did his skill.
