Jane (Butzner) Jacobs born in Scranton, PA, died in Toronto, Canada.

I believe she should be a notable, she has an article on wikipedia.

She's one of my favorite thinkers on urbanism. Her birth was 100 years ago.  (She died 10 years ago.)  I created her profile last night.  Anyone that is willing to help connect her to the tree, please jump right in!

I also admired her work, and I've added several family members for her. I need to do other things at the moment, but I think she'll be connected without much difficulty.
I will happily jump in. In Toronto, we have citizen-led walking tours named in her honour.
She's now connected through her husband. I'll add a few bios on his side when I have a minute. What an inspiring couple! Thanks for adding her to the notables list.
Wonderful!  Thank you.
