While my original post about Ely Liebow contained a good deal of information and garnered some great comments (thank you!), more information as been pouring in. I have added two updates to the entry. In case you don't feel like scrolling down, here they are:
On April 12, the Chicago Tribune did a very nice feature article/remembrance of Ely with comments from Otto Penzler, Bob Mangler and Ray Betzner.
And Peter Blau kindly identified an interview with Ely that aired on Wisconsin Public Radio's University of the Air on April 8, 2007. They dedicated the show to Ely's memory. It can be heard as a RealAudio file.
