J. Hoberman on Callie Angell.
Another in the Times.

I met Callie between her stints at the Whitney, when she was working for Arthur Danto et al. at the Journal of Philosophy. She'd been my girlfriend's boss the first time around, and came went back after she'd left. She was one of my closest friends for 10 years, but we hadn't talked for a long time.
Callie changed my opinion about Warhol. She showed me what many still don't understand: that he had one of the greatest eyes of the 20th century. I fought her on it and lost. To my lasting benefit.

The Times obit was updated, adding that it was suicide.
