In memory of Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, who reportedly died
today (Wed., Nov. 7, 2018) at 84 —

See Lehmann-Haupt in this journal on May 23, 2012:

On author Paul Fussell, who died today —

"Vincent B. Sherry, writing in The Cambridge Companion to the Literature of the First World War , called Mr. Fussell’s book 'the fork in the road for Great War criticism.'"  — Christopher Lehmann-Haupt in The New York Times

Actually, the writing was by James Campbell. Sherry was the book's editor. See Campbell's "Interpreting the War," pp. 261-279 of the 2005 (first) printing. The fork is on page 267.

Update of 9:26 PM— In the latest  version of Lehmann-Haupt's article, the fork has disappeared. But Campbell's writing is still misidentified as Sherry's.
