Hendrik Willem Van Loon was a journalist, academic, and author. Born in the Netherlands, he emigrated to America and attended Cornell and Harvard. His first job was with the Associated Press, covering Russia during the Revolution and Holland during World War I. He became a successful lecturer and author, writing histories in an informal, anecdotal style that appealed to juvenile and popular audiences. He wrote fiction as well as history, and is probably best remembered for The Story of Mankind, which he also illustrated, winner of the first Newberry Award.

Hendrik Willem Van Loon was born on January 14, 1882, in Rotterdam (the Netherlands). After emigrating to the United States in 1903, he graduated from Cornell University and got a job at the Associated Press in Washington, D.C. During his lifetime, Van Loon worked as a correspondent for the A.P. throughout Europe; taught history at a number of American universities; and was a well-known radio personality, all in addition to his prolific writing career. His first book was a nonfiction account for an academic audience, but by 1917 Van Loon had also started writing historical works for children. His first book for children, "History with a Match: Being an Account of the Earliest Navigators" was his debut as an illustrator. It was later republished under several titles, including "The Romance of Discovery" and "A Short History of Discovery." He claimed to have illustrated the book, quite literally, with a match dipped in ink. In 1921 Van Loon's most famous book, "The Story of Mankind," was published and won the very first Newbery Medal in 1922. Van Loon tired of being considered only an author for children and attempted to write denser historical works, with limited market success. Between Van Loon's histories, books for children, autobiographies, and works as an illustrator, he published more than fifty books in his lifetime. He died of heart failure on March 11, 1944.
