Art Cooper, editor of GQ for 20 years, died on June 9. Cooper had a stroke while eating at the Four Seasons, several weeks after he retired from his post. He was 65.
Nearly 400 magazine publishers, editors and writers — including Helen Gurley Brown, Tina Brown, David Halberstam and Jeff Greenfield — appeared at Cooper’s memorial in Manhattan this week. Harry Connick Jr. performed several songs in his honor.
