The APA identifies 25 individuals who significantly influenced the practice of planning before APA was established. The list begins with Hippodamus (5th century), who introduced order and regularity into the planning of cities, and ends with Paul Davidoff (1930-1984), who founded the Suburban Action Institute which challenged exclusionary zoning in the courts, winning a notable success in the Mt. Laurel case.
