Author. Born in Pound, Virginia, his mother died when he was very small. His family was very poor so they required him to work to pay his way to attend college. As a young man he was known as the "Mountain Reporter" for rural newspapers. He dropped out of college for lack of funds. He determined to interview wealth men to determine how they had become successful. His first interview was with Andrew Carnegie. Carnegie was impressed by Hill and helped him arrange interviews with most of the barons of the times. In 1937 he combined his own theories into the book, "Think and Grow Rich". This book quickly became a best seller, selling over 30 million copies. He died in South Carolina at the age of 87 while working on "You Can Work Your own Miracles" which was published after his death in 1971.
