   Acclaimed author David McCullough can add a quirky new title to his resume: honorary park ranger. The two-time Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner became an honorary ranger in a ceremony Tuesday afternoon in Boston. It’s the highest civilian honor awarded by the National Park Service, reserved for noted individuals who have made exceptional contributions.

   McCullough has been nicknamed a citizen chronicler, and is known for 11 books about luminaries ranging from John Adams and Theodore Roosevelt to Harry Truman and the Wright Brothers. His familiar story about our second president was adapted into an award-winning HBO production that starred Paul Giamatti.

They run a national historic site in Cornish, New Hampshire, named for the famed American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens.   MANNY PACHECO / DAVID McCULLOUGH —->

   I’m proud the eloquent McCullough owns copies of the Forgotten Hollywood Book Series. His influence led to my paperbacks being added to the New York Public Library system. David is a genuine scholar and an iconic American historian.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
