David McCullough has been called a “master of the art of narrative history.” His books have been praised for their exceptional narrative sweep, their scholarship and insight into American life, and for their literary distinction.
 
Mr. McCullough is twice winner of the National Book Award and twice winner of the prestigious Francis Parkman Prize. He received the Pulitzer Prize for both John Adams and his monumental Truman. For his work overall he has been honored with the National Book Foundation Distinguished Contribution to American Letters Award, the National Humanities Medal, the St. Louis Literary Award, the Carl Sandburg Award, and the New York Public Library’s Literary Lion Award.
 
In the words of the citation accompanying his honorary degree from Yale, “As an historian, he paints with words, giving us pictures of the American people that live, breath, and above all, confront the fundamental issues of courage, achievement, and moral character.”
 
His books include The Johnstown Flood, The Great Bridge, The Path Between the Seas, Mornings on Horseback, Brave Companions, and Truman. As may be said of the work of few writers, none of his books has ever been out of print.
 
In a crowded productive career, Mr. McCullough has been an editor, essayist, teacher, lecturer, and familiar presence on public television--as host of Smithsonian World, The American Experience, and narrator of numerous documentaries including The Civil War and Napoleon. He is a past president of the Society of American Historians. He has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and has received 31 honorary degrees.
 
A gifted speaker, Mr. McCullough has lectured in all parts of the country and abroad, as well as the White House. He is also one of the few private citizens to be asked to speak before a joint session of Congress.
