There is a heartfelt biographical essay about Dr. Jordan by
By Keith Bookwalter, publishing in October, 1992 at http://teach.valdosta.edu/anisa/jordan_bio.html
"Born June 2, 1932 into a large family in Alliance, Nebraska, Daniel Clyde Jordan was a child prodigy who at the age of nine was considerably on his own financially, paying, for example, for his own piano lessons. At the age of 13 he began his musical studies of the organ at the University of Nebraska from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music when he was 17. At the age of 18 Daniel Jordan became the first American to be awarded a Rhodes Scholarship for music. At Oxford University in England he earned both a Bachelor and Master of Arts degree in the composition, theory, and history of music; and he began his doctoral studies in musicology at the same institution. Interrupting his studies he served in the U.S. Army for two years from 1956 to 1958.
At this point Daniel Jordan made a critical decision that would change the course of his life and which will change, I believe, the future course of education. Turning down an offer to play Beethoven's "Emperor's Concerto" with the Oslo Symphony, which most likely would have set him on the tour circuit as a concert pianist, Jordan changed his career direction to human development and began collegiate studies again at the University of Chicago. In 1959 he completed the course work for his bachelor's degree but did not take the final exams because he already had two B.A.'s. From 1959 to 1960 he earned a master's degree in human development: an interdisciplinary course of study which examined the development of the human organism from conception to death from biological, psychological, sociological, and anthropological points of view. In 1964 he obtained a Ph.D. in human development with specialization in social anthropology and psychology. He went on to carry out a post-doctoral sequence in brain structure and brain chemistry and their relation to memory, emotion, and learning."
Dr. Jordan's writings and personal library are housed in the 'Daniel C. Jordan Memorial Library" at the Louhelen School, 3208 S. State Road, Davison, Michigan, 48423
