i looked it up...Robin predates Alfred, while Gordon predates Robin...so i was wrong anyways.

I just assumed Alfred was there from the very beginning.

Nope, the whole idea that Alfred was a faithful family retainer who helped raise young Bruce after his parents died is a fairly modern idea.

Alfred was originally a portly comedy relief character who just showed at the mansion one day, long after Batman and Robin starting fighting crime . . . .
