David McCullough was an invaluable national asset. His writings gave millions of readers a vivid understanding of history.
Jonathan Karp, CEO of Simon & Schuster, said in a statement that he "dramatically highlighted the most ennobling aspects of the American character through his biographies."
McCullough, a joyful and devoted student of the past, committed himself to spread his love of history among the general population.
He viewed himself as an ordinary person who had been allowed to pursue his passions and a lifelong interest.
His passion for architecture and building influenced his early works on the Brooklyn Bridge and the Panama Canal.
He was awarded Pulitzer Prizes for "Truman" (1992) and "John Adams," two presidential biographies by Mr. McCullough.
His books "The Path Between the Seas: The Creation of the Panama Canal" (1977) and "Mornings on Horseback," which chronicled the young Theodore Roosevelt and his family, both won National Book Awards.
