A Subtreasury of American Humor
A Subtreasury of American Humor is a 1941 anthology edited by E. B. White and Katharine White, of contemporary United States humor writers. Both editors were long-time contributors of The New Yorker, and the collection has been sometimes termed as "the New Yorker school of American Humor." Kurt Vonnegut said in 1976 that "an awful lot" of his work is rooted in this single book.

- Kurt Vonnegut (1976) interview with Charles Reilly, in Conversations with Kurt Vonnegut quote:
An awful lot of what I do is rooted in one book, which is E.B. White and Katherine White's Subtreasury of American Humor. It's a wonderful anthology, filled with the kind of splendid humor which has made us famous around the world -- you know, Mark Twain, Artemis Ward. There were a lot of funny people around.
