Harry Sinclair Lewis (1885-1951) received recognition as an American short story, playwright and book writer. He won the Nobel Award in Literature and became the first author from the U.S. to receive such a prize. He focused on materialism and capitalism critique within the American war environment. Lewis joined the Oberlin Academy to prepare for his acceptance at Yale University. He joined Yale in 1903, but only completed his studies in 1908.

This happened because he took leave from studying to work at the Helicon Home Colony and to visit Panama. His first published work received the name Hike and the Aeroplane in 1912. His initial book named The Trail of the Hawk: A Comedy of the Seriousness of Life became published in 1915. He also published The Job in 1917. Some other books Lewis published included Kingsblood Royal (1947), The God-Seeker (1949) and World So Wide (1951).
