July 1

July 1 is the birthdate of professor William Strunk, who taught English at Cornell for 46 years and first published this "little book," The Elements of Style, in 1918 for students in his classes. It was revised in the late 1950s by Strunk’s former student, E.B. White, writer and contributor to The New Yorker magazine.
