When I think of E.B. White I think of the classic children’s books, Stuart Little, Charlotte’s Web, and The Trumpet of the Swan, among others. He was also the co-author of the English language style guide The Elements of Style.
E.B. White was also a sailor. His adopted home was in Brooklin, Maine, where he lived for almost 50 years. His son, Joel White, was a naval architect and boat builder, who owned Brooklin Boat Yard. Here is a video, Lobsterman, written and narrated by E.B. White from the PBS show Omnibus.
