Elwyn Brooks "E. B." White (July 11, 1899 - October 1, 1985) was an American writer, best known as the author of children's books Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, and as the co-author of the widely used language guide The Elements of Style. E. B. White graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1921. He picked up the nickname "Andy" at Cornell, where tradition confers that moniker on any male student surnamed White, after Cornell co-founder Andrew Dickson White. While at Cornell, he worked as editor of The Cornell Daily Sun with classmate Allison Danzig who later became a sportswriter for The New York Times. White was also a member of the Quill and Dagger society and Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI). He wrote for The Seattle Times and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and worked for an advertising agency before returning to New York City in 1924. He published his first article in The New Yorker magazine in 1925, then joined the staff in 1927 and continued to contribute for six decades. In the late 1930s, White turned his hand to children's fiction on behalf of a niece, Janice Hart White. His first child's book,Stuart Little,was published in 1945, and Charlotte's Web appeared in 1952. White married Katharine Sergeant Angell in 1929. Angell was also an editor at The New Yorker, and the author (as Katharine White) of Onward and Upward in the Garden. They had a son, Joel White, a naval architect and boat builder, who owned Brooklin Boatyard in Brooklin, Maine. White died on October 1, 1985, at his farm home in North Brooklin, Maine. He was buried beside his wife at the Brooklin Cemetery.

Thereafter, they talked to each other and commented on each oth er’s personality to pass time.
