Cornell University economic geographer and regional development scholar Susan Christopherson died on December 14, 2016. At the time of her death, she was chair of the Department of City and Regional Planning (CRP) in the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning (AAP.) She joined the CRP faculty in 1987 and became first female full professor and chair of the department. I had the opportunity to know and work with this remarkable woman while I was at Cornell from 2009 to 2013. An obituary is posted on the AAP website.
