Hague was born to a Jewish family in Berlin, Germany. His father, Harry Marcuse, was a psychiatrist and a musical prodigy, and his mother, Mimi (née Heller), a chess champion. His family considered their Jewish heritage a liability and raised him as a Lutheran. Hague came to America in 1939 on scholarship to the University of Cincinnati. After graduating in 1942, he served in the United States Army during World War II.
