Romantic Couples Through the Ages

7 of 14
Slide 6

EB and Katherine White


EB once noted that he knew his marriage to Katherine would last after hearing her refer to dental floss as "tooth twine." Her verbal dexterity enchanted the author, and he fell deeply in love with his lady linguist. These wordsmiths met when they were both working at the New Yorker; a prominent New York literary magazine. Katherine was an elegant and stylish editor, and EB was a disheveled but talented writer. The couple proved to be an extraordinary team, and their collaboration during the infancy of the New Yorker helped create a voice that still resonates within the publication today.
