Biographical Sketch of L. D. Hickerson, Jr.

L. D. Hickerson, Jr., a prominent and progressive young citizen of Tullahoma, and cashier of the First National Bank of that place, was born five miles east of there January 13, 1861. He is the son of L. D. Hickerson, Sr., president of the above bank, whose father, John Hickerson, originally of North Carolina, founded one of the oldest and most respected families in this portion of the state.

Our subject was reared in Tullahoma, and, after attending the public schools, took a course at Burritt College, Spencer, Tennessee, and later took a complete course at Goodman’s Business College at Nashville. Returning to Tullahoma he entered the saw milling and contracting business in 1877, continuing at this until his election in 1885 as cashier of the bank. He is secretary and treasurer of the Caney Fork Coal & Iron Company, treasurer of Tullahoma, and is a member of Tullahoma Lodge, K. of H., of which he is Vice-Dictator. In local politics he is a “Mugwump,” but in national affairs always supports the republican nominees.
