Johnny Grant, Beloved "Mayor of Hollywood," 1923-2008

We learned with great sadness that Johnny Grant, the unofficial "Mayor of Hollywood," passed away on Wednesday. Mr. Grant was a tireless promoter of the neighborhood that gave our industry its name, even when others could see no glamour beneath the blight.

The LA Times has both an obituary and a photo gallery.
