c. New Yorker
White was born on July 11, 1899.
He joined the New Yorker staff soon after the magazine was founded in 1925 and stayed there for his entire career.
White drew upon the decades of insight he gained through working in the heart of the city to write the short travelogue "Here is New York." But when it came time to retire, White chose to spend his final years on a farm North Brooklin, Maine.
He is best remembered by the public at large for writing the children's books "Charlotte's Web" and "Stuart Little."
