E.B. White, famous author of “Charlotte’s Web” and “Stuart Little” was my grandfather’s youngest brother. In 1973, Uncle E.B. wrote me a letter expressing that “so often the author is just forgotten.” I promised that I would never let him be forgotten. For over 30 years, I have enjoyed sharing my precious E.B. White photographs, letters, autographed first edition books and other heirlooms. My presentation contains unique and interesting memorabilia for students, teachers, libraries and bookstores.
Children and adults are always familiar with my Great Uncle E.B. White’s children’s books, however they are not always knowledgeable about the author. In 1973, Uncle E.B. wrote me a letter expressing that “so often the author is just forgotten.” I promised that I would never let him be forgotten.
My presentation is highlighted with the family typewriter (c. 1900) and a 1911 Webster’s dictionary signed “Elwyn B. White” when he was eleven years old. Signed 1st edition book “The Lady is Cold” published in 1929. My most cherished item is a signed book of “Charlotte’s Web” presented to me in 1952. I truly cherish these items. I have hundreds of items to share!
As a non-profit organization, the E.B. White memorabilia must be preserved, protected and permanent for the education of many people in future generations.
Grandniece of E.B. White
