Publication Date



[Excerpt] Cornell Hospitality Quarterly editor, Michael LaTour, lost his battle with cancer and passed away peacefully at his home on November 8, 2015. Mike LaTour’s in memoriam, which was written by his wife, Kathryn LaTour, reminds us of his legacy as an editor, scholar, and person. I want to use this “From the Editor” to highlight and discuss another of his editorial legacies. Before he passed away, Mike decided to introduce a “research note” section to the CQ—the first accepted one appears in this issue. I strongly supported Mike’s decision to have the CQ publish research notes and I intend to continue publishing them during my editorship.
