The New York Times  at 11:44 AM today —

Barbara Gelb, an author and journalist who, with her husband, Arthur Gelb, produced the first full-scale biography of the playwright Eugene O’Neill, then followed it decades later with two volumes that reconsidered his life, died on Thursday [Feb. 9, 2017] at her home in Manhattan. She was 91.

Her death was confirmed by her son, Peter, general manager of the Metropolitan Opera.

For much of their long careers — Mr. Gelb was the culture editor and then managing editor of The New York Times — the Gelbs were consumed by O’Neill, who was regarded by many critics as the greatest American playwright.
