E.B. White

E.B. White was born in New York in 1989.
He wrote three books for children, including Stuart Little (1945) and Charlotte's Web (1952).
Writer E.B. White was born on July 11, 1899, in Mount Vernon, New York. His parents named him Elwyn Brooks White, but he did not appreciate the name. "I never liked Elwyn. My mother just hung it on me because she'd run out of names," he told The New York Times in 1980. "I was her sixth child."
