Short biography
Elenore Lester was a freelance journalist who wrote extensively on the arts. She graduated from Hunter College and New York University. Writing for publications such as The New York Times, The Village Voice, and The New Republic, she helped document the emergence of the Off-Off-Broadway theater. In 1973, she joined the newspaper Jewish Week as arts editor, a position she held until her death.
Her 1980 article for The New York Times Magazine on Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who saved hundreds of Hungarian Jews from the Nazis in World War II before disappearing behind the Iron Curtain, led to a book, Raoul Wallenberg: The Man in the Iron Web (1984).
She taught at City College, Jersey City State College, and New York University.
