Full Bio

David McCullough has been widely acclaimed as a “master of the art of narrative history” and “a matchless writer.” Winner of two Pulitzer Prizes and the National Book Award, he also received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award.

Mr. McCullough’s most recent book, The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris, was a number one New York Times best seller. McCullough’s books, such as 1776, John Adams, and Truman, have been praised for their scholarship, understanding of American life, “vibrant prose,” and insight into individual character. John Adams was made into a seven-part mini-series on HBO which was produced by Tom Hanks and starred Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney.

His work has been translated and published in 15 countries around the world, and, as may be said of few writers, none of his books has ever been out of print. His recent book The Wright Brothers is a New York Times #1 Best Seller.

Honored by the National Book Foundation for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, McCullough also received the National Humanities Medal and won the prestigious Francis Parkman Prize twice. He has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and has received more than forty honorary degrees.

In a crowded, productive career, he 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. His is also the narrator’s voice in the movie Seabiscuit.

A gifted speaker, McCullough has lectured all over the US and abroad. He is one of the few private citizens to speak before a joint session of Congress and at the White House.
