Educated at the Leys School, Cambridge and Christ's College, Cambridge, Hilton was the son of a schoolmaster and began writing at an early age. His first article was published in 1917 in the Manchester Guardian. He published his first novel, Catherine Herself in 1920, In 1921, he left university to take a job with the Irish Independent newspaper in Dublin. He did well financially at the paper and began devoting more of his time to writing novels, which he continued to publish during the 1920's, but it was the publication of Lost Horizons in 1933 that finally established his fame. The book won the prestigious Hawthornden prize and was made into a film in Hollywood. It also established the term "Shangri-La" which Hilton introduced in the book. In 1934, even greater success was realised with Goodbye Mr. Chips, a heartwarming story of a schoolmaster that was also made into a film which won an Oscar. Hilton also wrote numerous screenplays including Mrs Miniver, which won him an Oscar in 1942. Hilton had settled in America after 1935. He died from liver cancer in 1954. His other works include Was It Murder? (1931), And Now Goodbye (1931), Knight Without Armour (1933), We Are Not Alone (1937), Random Harvest (1941), So Well Remembered (1947) and Time and Time Again (1953).
