Biographical / Historical

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.
