Pulitzer prize-wining author E. B. White was probably the most important contributor to the New Yorker, at a time when it was arguably the most important literary magazine in the country. He primarily wrote essays, and his columns for Harper’s and other magazines were widely read. In the nineteen thirties, at the request of a young relative he began to write fiction. He will probably be best remembered for his enduring children’s classics such as Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little.
