Ground was formally broken for the Charles E. Gorton High School in North Yonkers. Mayor Walter Taussig, using a spade, and Dr. B.W. Stilwell, a pickaxe, turned up the first clods of earth.
The high school was named after Charles E. Gorton, Yonker's second Schools Superintendent. Gorton High School is the oldest campus in Yonkers.
