In Memory of Eleanor Callahan

Tribute February 29, 2012 12:02 pm

The beautiful Eleanor Callahan, Harry Callahan’s wife and muse, passed away yesterday at the age of 95. Obituary and slideshow in the Times today.

“He just liked to take the pictures of me,” she told an interviewer in 2008. “In every pose. Rain or shine. And whatever I was doing. If I was doing the dishes or if I was half asleep. And he knew that I never, never said no. I was always there for him. Because I knew that Harry would only do the right thing.”-Eleanor Callahan (as reported in the Times)
