Instances of Gordon's partition theorem that have been hiding in Slater's list!
We will examine three general Bailey pairs and show how the majority of
entries in Lucy Slater's list of 130 identiites of Rogers-Ramanujan type follow from them.
Further, we will see how a mild extension of Basil Gordon's combinatorial generalization
of the Rogers-Ramanujan identities and two closely related partition theorems provide
natural combinatorial interpretations for these Slater-list identities.
