Administrative History

John M. Hickman was born May 28, 1925, in Amarillo, Texas. His family came to Wichita in the late 1930s where Hickman attended Robinson Intermediate and East High schools. Hickman worked as an illustrator of manuals for the Aero Parts Manufacturing Company while in high school, but left his senior year to work as an illustrator for Lockheed Aircraft Company in California. Hickman entered the Army Air Corps during World War II and received his fighter pilot wings in 1944. After the war, he returned to Wichita and completed the work necessary for his high school diploma while also employed as an illustrator at Beech Aircraft Company. He left Wichita where he studied architecture at the University of Illinois and worked as an apprentice under Frank Lloyd Wright. Hickman returned to Wichita where he worked for the architectural firm Thomas & Harris before starting Architects Associated with Arthur T. Woodman in 1954. In 1961 he partnered with Roy K. Varenhorst to form John M. Hickman and Associates, Architects & Planning Consultants. Hickman committed suicide April 23, 1964.

Roy K. Varenhorst was born September 25, 1928, in Conway Springs, Kansas, where he graduated high school in 1946. He then received a degree in Architecture from Kansas State University in 1950. Varenhorst served in Korea as a naval pilot, earning among other honors, the Air Medal for Meritorious Achievement. After his Honorable Discharge, Varenhorst was an apprentice with Frank Lloyd Wright at his Taliesin Studios. In 1958 Varenhorst joined Architects Associated with John M. Hickman and Arthur T. Woodman. In 1961 he partnered with Hickman to form John M. Hickman and Associates, Architects & Planning Consultants. After Hickman's death in 1964, Varenhorst maintained the firm, later renaming it Roy K. Varenhorst & Associates in 1966. Varenhorst died April 24, 1997.
