Hickman, Training School, Biology, Psychology teacher, 1881-1884, 1900-1907. ~ ~ ~ ~ There is perhaps no more poignant experience for a Mormon raised in the shadow of the temple than to go away to school. Even more than a mission call it creates a sharpened sense of identity, a more acute awareness of being different from the world. In 1892 Josiah E. Hickman left Utah for Ann Arbor, Michigan; he was one of a number of Utah students who found a welcome at the University of Michigan and who represented the vanguard of Mormons who would eventually "go East" for an education. Josiah Hickman also was among the vanguard of Mormons who would devote their lives to the Church educational system. He was graduated from the Brigham Young Academy in 1883 and always insisted that Karl G. Maeser "had laid the foundation of the grandest educational system the world has ever seen". He was principal of the Millard Stake Academy in Fillmore from 1887 until 1892 when he went to the University of Michigan. Following his graduation from the University of Michigan he accepted a teaching position at Brigham Young College in Logan. He later received a master's degree in psychology from Columbia. He also taught at BYH and BYU during his academic career. ~ ~ ~ ~ BIOGRAPHY: Josiah Edwin Hickman, educator and underwriter, was born at Salem, Utah, Aug. 3, 1862, son of George Washington and Lucy Ann (Haws) Hickman. His father, a physician and farmer, was a native of Missouri and of English ancestry. The son was educated at Brigham Young Academy (later Brigham Young University), Provo, Utah; the University of Michigan, where he was graduated A.B. in 1895, and at Columbia University, where he received an M.A. degree in 1907. For thirty-five years he taught school in Utah and Idaho, starting his teaching career at Provo in 1885. During 1888-92 he was principal of the Millard Stake (Latter-day Saints) Academy at Fillmore, Utah. After leaving the University of Michigan he was professor of education at Brigham Young College at Logan, Utah, for a year and then (1897) became principal of the Oneida L.D.S. Stake Academy at Preston, Idaho, remaining there until 1900, when he was made head of the physics department at Brigham Young University. After six years in this post he resigned in order to enter Columbia University. During 1907-11 he was principal of Murdock Academy at Beaver, Utah, and after another year at Columbia University he became head of the department of education at Brigham Young College at Logan and exchange professor at Utah State Agricultural College. He continued in these positions until 1920. During 1920-33 he was associated with the Pacific National Life Assurance Co. of Salt Lake City, except in 1926-27, when he represented the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a missionary in California and in 1930-31 when he was engaged in research at Columbia University on the aborigines of America. Hickman was the author of the Romance of the Book of Mormon (1937) and of numerous religious pamphlets and articles and throughout his life lectured on religious and psychological subjects. For four years he was superintendent of the Utah Stake Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association. While in Idaho Hickman was a regent of the University of Idaho. He was married three times: (1) at Logan, Utah, Feb. 18, 1884 to Martha Ellen, daughter of Dr. David Rogers, of Provo; she died in 1900; (2) at El Paso del Norte, Mexico, June 7, 1890, to Martha, daughter of Robert Lawisch, of Salt Lake City; (3) in Salt Lake City, Jan. 21, 1902, to Helen, daughter of Peter Hanson, of Levan, Utah. By the first marriage, he had seven children: Fern, wife of Sheridan McGarry; Edwin Dee; Othello; Josiah Eugene; George Washington; Lavon, and Lorea Hickman, wife of Thomas Edward Brown. By the second marriage he had nine children: Leonidas Marion; Reginald Lawisch; Juanita, wife of Orral Tillison Whitehead; Radino Lawisch; Valko Lawisch; Rienna (died in infancy); Thorval Lawisch; Kyrmel Lawisch, and Marva Hickman, wife of Ellis Schow Hansen. By the third marriage, he had two sons, Felton and Myrthus Hickman (known under the screen name of Gordon Westcott). His death occurred at Logan, Utah, Oct. 5, 1937.
