Educated at Leipzig University and the Harvard Divinity School, Collier initially joined the clergy as a Unitarian minister in 1882. In 1891, he retired from his ministry in order to pursue a writing career. He spent two years as the European editor of Forum magazine and later took part in the Spanish-American War as a U.S. Navy officer. Collier became well-known for his books and articles on different nationalities, beginning with America and Americans from a French Point of View (1897). Collier died suddenly on the island of Funen, Denmark while visiting the Danish Count Weddel. His other works include Sermons (1892), Mr. Picket-Pin and His Friends (1894), Riding and Driving (1905), England and the English from an American Point of View (1909), West in the East From an American Point of View (1911) and Germany and the Germans From an American Point of View (1913), which reached number 2 on the non-fiction best-seller list for that year.
