Poor eyesight helped guide Aldous Leonard Huxley to a literary career. Born in 1894 in England, Huxley began his schooling in his father's botanical laboratory. He later studied at Eton and English literature at Balliol College, Oxford, from which he graduated with first class honors. Following university, Huxley taught French for a year at Eton. His jobs also included working as a farm laborer during World War I and at a chemical plant, as well as editing the magazine Oxford Poetry. Most famous for his 1959 novel Brave New World, Huxley also published short stories, poetry, travel writing, film scripts, and nearly fifty other books. Brave New World, recipient of the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award of Merit, has been adapted several times for television, radio, and film. Huxley moved with his family to Hollywood in 1938 and lived in the U.S. until his death in 1963.
