Milton studied journalism at the University of Iowa. He obtained work on a small newspaper in Texas, and in the next few years, had editorial stints from Des Moines to St. Louis to New York to Chicago. Just after earning a Master of Arts degree from Northwestern University, World War II interrupted his plans. Lomask served four years as a captain in the army. When the war was over, and now in New York City, Lomask worked in advertising and publicity management, while in his free time he wrote magazine articles and plays. By 1950 he felt ready to venture into full-time writing and teaching on his own.
