Born in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, George McCutcheon was the elder brother of John T. McCutcheon. His interests ranged from literature to agriculture, the latter avocation resulting in his being asked to manage the first farm owned by Purdue University. He attended Purdue University, but left to take a position with the Lafayette Journal. He later left that newspaper and began writing for the Lafayette Daily-Courier, where he was the city editor until 1901. After establishing himself as a novelist, he moved to New York. His first success was Graustark (1901), followed by Brewster's Millions (1902), Castle Craneycrow (1902), and The Day of the Dog (1905).
