About the Author:

William Strunk Jr. (July 1, 1869 – September 26, 1946) was an American professor of English at Cornell University and author of the The Elements of Style (1918).

In 1918, Strunk privately published The Elements of Style for the use of his Cornell students, who gave it its nickname, "the little book." Strunk intended the guide "to lighten the task of instructor and student by concentrating attention ... on a few essentials, the rules of usage and principles of composition most commonly violated." In 1935, Strunk and Edward A. Tenney revised and published the guide as The Elements and Practice of Composition (1935).
