Helen McGehee  died last month at age 98.


While dancing with the Graham troupe for 29 years, McGehee created original roles that included a joyous young girl in love in “Diversion of Angels” and the vengeful Electra in “Clytemnestra.” In 1947, she took on her most celebrated role as the ferocious leader of a Greek chorus in “Night Journey,” Graham’s retelling of the Jocasta-Oedipus story. She also became an independent choreographer and costume designer.
