A memorial service will be held in the spring. Contributions in Lovelady’s name can be sent to Investigative Reporters & Editors, the nonprofit based at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, in Columbia, Missouri.

If you'd like to get email from CJR writers and editors, add your email address to our newsletter roll and we'll be in touch.

Mike Hoyt was CJR's executive editor from 2001 to 2013, teaches at Columbia's Journalism School and is the editor of The Big Roundtable, a startup that is a home for narrative writing.
