Ida Gordon

Ida Lilian Gordon (née Pickles, b. 1907 - 26 September 2002) was a scholar and teacher at the University of Manchester. She studied at the University of Leeds (B.A. honours 1928, Ph.D. 1930) under E.V. Gordon, whom she married in 1930.[1]

In 1960, Ida Gordon published The Seafarer, an edition of the Old English poem. This edition was based on a work originally done by E.V. Gordon and J.R.R. Tolkien.[2]
