"Endearing for young and old, full of wit and wisdom and amusement." - H.
E. B. White was born in Mount Vernon, New York, in 1899, and went to ther public schools there. He graduated from Cornell University in 1921, worked in New York for a year, and then traveled about. After five or six years trying many sorts of jobs, plus a year or two of unemployment, he found work with The New Yorker; then in its infancy. The connection proved a happy one and resulted in a steady output of satirical sketches, poems, and editorials. Many of these were unsigned, and some were published over the initials E.B.W. In 1938 he went to the country and wrote essays every month for Harper's magazine. Mr. White found writing difficult and bad for one's health, but he kept at it even so. He would have liked, more than anything, to be a poet. The poets, he thought, are the great ones. He began Stuart Little in the hope of amusing a six-year-old niece of his, but before he had finished it she had growth up and was reading Hemingway.
