KENNEBUNKPORT, MAINE – "Laura and I are saddened by the passing of a great American historian, and a great American, David McCullough. David brought some of the most important people and events of our past back to life with rich research, vivid writing, and his wonderful, recognizable, trustworthy voice. Laura and I are fortunate to call David and his family our friends. While we and our country will miss David, we need only reach for the bookshelf to be with him again."
