Dr. James Blair Hill, born in Morgantown, W.Va., is the son of David Hill, the youngest son of Napoleon Hill and Florence Hornor. He graduated from high school in 1966 and spent time at sea on cargo ships until 1969, when he was drafted into service as a private with the United States Marine Corps.

In 1973, he attended Vanderbilt University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. At graduation, he was commissioned as a second lieutenant and commenced service in the Marines as a field artillery officer. He later earned a MS degree in mathematics from the Naval Postgraduate School.

In 1995, he retired from the Marine Corps after 26 years of service to study medicine. At the age of 53, he graduated from medical school and started a three-year residency in family medicine. Dr. Hill is board-certified in family medicine and holds certifications in wound care and hyperbaric medicine.  He is now working as a hospitalist in geriatric care and lives with his wife and two children in Bridgeport, WV.

Dr. Hill’s association with Napoleon Hill’s philosophy began at 12 when his grandfather placed a copy of Think and Grow Rich into his hands and told him to read it.  However, he did not understand the legacy that his grandfather had given him until he was 23.  What he learned from his grandfather changed his life.
