After graduating from Edgerton High School, he earned his way through the University of Chicago and began his writing career. He wrote for The Chicago Daily News, The New York World-Telegram and Sun, and for many magazines, including Reader's Digest, The Atlantic, Esquire, and Holiday.

In 1947, he completed So Dear to My Heart, the best seller that established him as one of America's favorite novelists. It was translated into 26 languages and charmed motion picture audiences everywhere when it was filmed by Walt Disney.
