Cornell University: “Conan O’Brien Correspondence With E.B. White Surfaces”
From Cornell Chronicle:
When two Cornell University Library staffers heard comedian Conan O’Brien talk in his podcast about a letter he sent to famed author E.B. White nearly 40 years ago, they had a thought: What if that note from the then-16-year-old O’Brien was among the 25,000 letters in the library’s E.B. White Collection?
Maureen Morris and Rob Kotaska of Olin Library’s Research and Learning Services – both avid listeners of “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend” – were touched by O’Brien’s account of his correspondence with White, a 1921 Cornell graduate, who had replied with encouraging advice.
