In Memoriam: Is Stollman

Israel Stollman, FAICP, distinguished urban planner and key negotiator in the merger that created APA, died February 2 in New Zealand at the age of 81.

For 25 years, the name Israel Stollman, FAICP, was synonymous with urban planning. Known for his comprehensive view of the field, Stollman was instrumental in the 1978 consolidation of two planning groups into one national organization, the American Planning Association.

Family, friends, and colleagues remember Mr. Stollman and his impact on planning over the decades in this article by Ruth Knack, AICP.
