I only now learned of her death. She was the best of friends when we were at Tulane, and gave me the best advice I ever got in grad school.
She was more than a friend and mentor. She was a spiritual guide.
May the love of family and friends comfort you as you grieve. Matthew 5:4
My prayers to you and your family on the loss of Ellen.
From your CLTV days.
Ellen was a great mentor and good friend to so many people, as she was improbably for me. I first heard of her from her students, I first met her through her cultural outreach in her longrunning SCETV series Ex Libris, but many have had their own introductions to her remarkable influence. She lives in our experience and memory. Patrick Scott
