E.B. White biography
In 1927, E.B. White joined The New Yorker magazine as writer and contributing editor—a position that he would hold for the rest of his career. He wrote three books for children, including Stuart Little (1945) and Charlotte's Web (1952). In 1959 he revised The Elements of Style by the late William Strunk, Jr., which became a standard style manual for writers. White earned a Pulitzer Prize special citation in 1978.
