James H. Hickman graduated from the University of Louisville School of Medicine in 1875. Hickman lived in Owensboro, Kentucky all his life and served as mayor and held positions as a pharmacist, tobacco merchant, doctor, bank director and manufacturer of Owensboro Wagons. An extremely influential man, he also served as a school board member and city councilman, and successfully argued for the development of paved streets in Owensboro. Hickman’s fortune was largely dissipated with the Hickman-Ebbert Wagon Company venture and he ultimately committed suicide after a long period of ill-health and despondency.
