Just came across this article from 2011 that marked Fodor's guides 75th year - in many ways Fodor's guides were the archtype of the modern guidebook - way back in the 1930s Eugene was writing guides for tourists - and here we are in this great forum benefitting from Eugene's efforts.

Eugene Fodor had an amazingly interesting life - let's celebrate his efforts in many ways of launching the modern guide book and his work carries on today with guidebooks and this forum.

Hat's off to Eugene Fodor!
