He was the urban affairs editor of The Courier-Journal, and anyone who cared about city planning knew Grady and the work he was doing in Louisville in those days. It must have been a good life for them; both were born in 1916, and each lived nine decades. (Jane Jacobs died in 2006; Grady died <a href="/post/noted-journalist-urbanist-grady-clay-dead-96">early Sunday morning.)</a></span></p><p> Mon, 18 Mar 2013 20:19:46 +0000 Keith Runyon 4548 at http://wfpl.org Grady Clay, An Urban Visionary Noted Journalist, Urbanist Grady Clay Dead at 96 http://wfpl.org/post/noted-journalist-urbanist-grady-clay-dead-96 <p>Journalist Grady Clay, who wrote about landscape architecture and urban planning, died Sunday in Louisville, according to sources close to his family.
