He picked up the nickname "Andy" at Cornell, where custom confers that monicker on any student called White, after Cornell co-founder Andrew Dickson White. He wrote for The Seattle Times and Seattle Post-Intelligencer and worked as an ad guy before returning to New York City in 1924.

He published his initial post in The New Yorker magazine in 1925, then joined the staff in 1927 and continued to lead for six years. Best known for his essays and unsigned Notes and Comment pieces which were generally read as the magazine grew in influence, he slowly became the most crucial contributor to The New Yorker at a time when it was arguably the most crucial American literary magazine. He also served as a columnist for Harper's Magazine from 1938 to 1943.

In the late 1930s he turned his hand to children's fiction on behalf of the niece, Janice Hart White. His initial children's book, Stuart Little, was published in 1945, and Charlotte's Web appeared in 1952.

In 1959 he edited and up-to-date The Elements of Style. A handbook of grammatical and stylistic do's and don't's for writers of American English, it had been created and published in 1918 by William Strunk Jr., a professor under whom White had studied at Cornell. White's rework of the book was very perfectly received, and further editions of the function followed in 1972, 1979, and 1999; an illustrated edition followed in 2005. That same year, a New York composer called Nico Muhly premiered a brief opera based found on the book. The amount is a standard tool for pupils and writers, and remains necessary reading in numerous composition classes.

In 1978, White was granted a unique Pulitzer Prize for his function as a entire. Other awards he received included a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1963, and memberships in a range of literary societies throughout the United States. White was furthermore a planet federalist, and when said

"Government is the thing. Law is the thing. Not brotherhood, not global cooperation, not protection councils that will stop war just by waging it...Where does safety lie, anyway - protection from the thief, the murderer? In brotherly love? Not at all. It lies in government."

White wedded Katharine Sergeant Angell in 1929, furthermore an editor at the magazine and writer (as Katharine White) of Onward and Upward in the Garden. They had a son, Joel White, a naval architect and boatbuilder, having Brooklin Boatyard in Brooklin, Maine.

White's fashion was wry, understated, thoughtful, and informed. He was commonly considered a master of the English code, noted for obvious, well-constructed, and charming prose. Many visitors single out his essay "Here Is New York," created for Holiday magazine in 1948 and published in book shape the upcoming year, for its distillation of the bittersweet pleasures of New York City lifetime. It was generally quoted after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, as a result of a passage--written at the beginning of the age of nuclear weapons--in which he talks about New York's vulnerability: :"The city, for the very first time in its extended history, is destructible. A single flight of planes no bigger than a wedge of geese could swiftly end this island fantasy, burn the towers, crumble the bridges, turn the underground passages into lethal chambers, cremate the millions. The intimation of mortality is piece of New York in the sound of the jets overhead, in the black headlines of the newest edition."

He died on October 1, 1985 at his farm house in North Brooklin, Maine, after a extended fight with Alzheimer's condition and was interred at the Brooklin Cemetery
