(1899 - 1985)
 “I get up every morning determined to both change the world and have one hell of a good time. Sometimes this makes planning my day difficult.” 

 Elwyn Brooks White was born in Mount Vernon, New York on July 11, 1899.

He graduated from Cornell University in 1921 and worked as a reporter for various news agencies, before becoming a contributing editor to The New Yorker in 1927, an association which continued until his death in 1985. His most famous works are children’s novels, Charlotte’s Web (1962) and Stuart Little (1945), but he also wrote many books of essays and poetry.

Awards included the 1971 National Medal for Literature and the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal, which commended him for making “a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children.”

 “It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer.” Charlotte’s Web
