C. Gordon Post, professor emeritus of political science, died in Poughkeepsie at the age of 93.  A graduate of Johns Hopkins University, Professor Post joined the Vassar faculty in 1933, after receiving his doctorate from his alma mater. He was the author of The Supreme Court and Political Questions (1936), Significant Cases in British Constitutional Law (1957) and An Introduction to the Law (1963).  He collaborated with President Henry Noble MacCracken on Fair Play: An Introduction to Race and Group Relations, which appeared in 1942.  Retiring from Vassar in 1969, he served as the Robert D. Campbell Visiting Professor at Wells College between 1969 and 1985.

Post appeared frequently in dramatic productions during the heyday of The Vassar Experimental Theatre, appearing as Caliban in Shakespeare's The Tempest in 1944 and Becket in T. S. Eliot's Murder in the Cathedral (1935) in 1941.  His first appearance was in 1934 as the Soviet politician Tsexovoi opposite MacCracken's Ivan Borodin—a role modeled on physiologist Ivan Pavlov—in the American première of Fear (1931) by the Russian socialist realist playwright Aleksandr Afinogenov.  In a letter, a student observed: "The play was swell with Prexy and a new college heart-throb, Political Science Prof. Mr. Post, featured."
