Larry Ford succumbs to illness

The American Geographical Society announces with great sadness that Larry Ford died of pancreatic cancer late yesterday afternoon. As a long-time supporter, councilor, and friend of the AGS, Larry carved out a distinguished career as an urban geographer at San Diego State University. His books, articles, and talks made him one of the most influential urban geographers of his generation – take a look at #89 on this web site of the 100 top urban thinkers. Larry was a wonderful person, with a quick wit and never-ending quips that kept friends and colleagues smiling whenever he was around.
The AGS has lost someone special.
