David McCullough, a 2006 winner of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and recipient of two Pulitzer Prizes and two National Book awards, has been called the master of American history and a “matchless writer.” His books, 10 to date, range from biographies of Harry Truman and John Adams to histories of the Johnstown flood, the Panama Canal and the Brooklyn Bridge. His “1776,” which covers a year in the life of George Washington and the American Revolution, is a classic.

McCullough is the author of ten books on American history, including 1776, Truman, John Adams, and, most recently, The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris. Recipient of two Pulitzer Prizes, two National Book Awards, and the National Medal of Honor, the highest civilian award in the nation, McCullough has been called America’s greatest historian. He has brought generations to an appreciation and understanding of the role of history in our nation’s political, social, and intellectual life.

McCullough is also one of America’s most recognizable voices. As the host of PBS’s “American Experience” for more than a decade, he told the stories of history in a riveting, accessible fashion for viewers of all ages and backgrounds. He has lent his voice to several Ken Burns documentaries and narrated the 2003 film “Seabiscuit.”
