Deaths Elsewhere

January 28, 2000

Edward J. Logue, 78, an urban planner who remade the face of Boston in the 1960s as director of the city's redevelopment authority, died yesterday at home in West Tisbury, Mass. His development program led to Government Center, the Prudential Center and a revitalization of the waterfront region, an overhaul of city neighborhoods that gave Boston a new image.

His "Walkway to the Sea" -- the Faneuil Hall-Quincy Market restoration -- was another project conceived, approved and funded under his aegis. It became one of the best known and most imitated community development projects in the country.

In 1968, Mr. Logue went to New York to head Nelson Rockefeller's newly formed New York State Urban Development Corp.

Beatrice Rutman, 84, the mother of Bob Dylan, died Tuesday in St. Paul, Minn., the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported yesterday, citing sources it did not identify.
