"When I read that the British army had landed thirty-two thousand troops - and I had realized, not very long before, that Philadelphia only had thirty thousand people in it - it practically lifted me out of my chair." -- David McCullough
David Gaub McCullough () (born July 7, 1933 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) is an American author, narrator, and lecturer. He is a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the United States' highest civilian award.

Born and reared in Pittsburgh, McCullough earned a degree in English literature from Yale University. His first book was The Johnstown Flood (1968); and he has since written seven more on such topics as Harry S Truman, John Adams, and the Brooklyn Bridge. McCullough has also narrated multiple documentaries, as well as the 2003 film Seabiscuit; and he hosted American Experience for twelve years. Two of McCullough's books, Truman and John Adams, have been adapted by HBO into a TV film and a mini-series, respectively. McCullough's next work, about Americans in Paris from the 1830s to the 1930s, is due out in 2010.
