NAPOLEON HILL was born in 1883 in a one-room
log cabin in Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. As a teen-ager,
he worked as a newspaper reporter to finance his way through
Georgetown University Law School. This job led to his life's
work. His outstanding reporting for the paper brought him to
the attention of Robert L. Taylor, Governor of Tennessee and
owner of Bob Taylor's Magazine.
Taylor employed Hill, then twenty-five, to
write a series of success stories of famous men, the first of
whom was Andrew Carnegie. Hill so impressed Carnegie that he
commissioned him to do a job that would become a twenty-year
assignment--interviewing 504 of the nation's most successful
men in order to find through their experiences a success formula
that would work for the average man. Among those Hill interviewed
were such famous names as Ford, Wrigley, Wanamaker, Eastman,
Rockefeller, Edison, Woolworth, Darrow, Burbank, Morgan, Firestone--as
well as three United States Presidents.
Napoleon Hill published the first interpretation
of the philosophy of individual achievement in 1928, exactly
twenty years after the Carnegie interview.
During the time Hill was compiling the work,
he supported his family by holding various positions, including
a period as advertising manager of La Salle Extension University
of Chicago, and editing and publishing the Golden Rule magazine.
During World War 1, he was assigned to President Woodrow Wilson's
staff as a public relations expert. In 1933, Jennings Randolph,
the present United States Senator from West Virginia, introduced
Hill to President Roosevelt. Hill again became the presidential
Several years later, he resigned to devote
more time to writing and completing his summary twenty-year project,
THINK AND GROW RICH. In 1952, Napoleon Hill Associates was organized
and Hill came out of semi-retirement to spread his science of
success philosophy. Hill heads the Napoleon Hill Foundation,
a nonprofit educational institution dedicated to teaching others
the science of personal achievement. Hill once again resumed
a full-time schedule in 1963, forming the Academy of Personal
Achievement, a home-study and/or in-residence course begun in
his eightieth year.
