Robert Henry Clark Grandy, a former director of the Peterborough Exhibition, died Wednesday (Dec. 15) at his home at Brooklin in Ontario County. His age was 83.

Mr. Grandy had lived in this city at the northwest corner of Park Hill Road and Water Street during a period of retirement from active farming. Previously he was for years engaged in agriculture in Cavan Township, west of Springville. He specialized in Clydesdale horses and Durham cattle. He had imported Clydes from Scotland and was widely known as a breeder. In that work he was associated for a time with his brother- in-law, Richard Dundas.

As a director of the Peterborough Exhibition, Mr. Grandy was a member of the heavy horse committee. He and the late Thomas Henry Graham and Mr. Thomas Brown were close friends within the affairs of the exhibition and also outside them. He had often acted as judge of horses at fall fairs and horse shows.

He was a member of George Street United Church.
