In Memoriam

William Landers Hickman (October 15, 1955–

January 19, 2012)

Bill Hickman, dear friend and colleague, passed away early in 

2012 of a sudden illness. He was a talented objects conservator, 

as well as an avid bird watcher, hiker, and lover of books, history 

(especially the 19th-century), photographs, and so much more. 

He loved writing letters. He was eloquent and a great story 

teller. Everything interested Bill; and his near photographic 

memory allowed him to share extraordinary experiences with 

everyone who was dear to him.

He was born to Jack Walter Hickman and Mary Landers 

Hickman in Indianapolis and lived there, until moving to Tampa 

in 1970 where his father became the Associate Dean of the 

medical school at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

After he graduated from high school (Berkeley Preparatory 

School), he went on to Franklin & Marshall College and earned 

a bachelors in English in 1978. He received a Masters in English 

from Columbia University and then studied historic preserva-

tion at Columbia. This led to enrollment at Institute of Fine Arts 

Conservation Program, New York University (NYU) where 

he graduated with degrees in Art History and Conservation in 


Bill joined the department of American Decorative Arts at 

the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MMA) as a conservator in 

November of 1987, while still attending graduate school at 

NYU. His conservation work was beautiful and masterful, and 

he specialized in Remington sculpture. In 1989, he shifted to the 

Registrars department, first as registrar, then as assistant conser-

vator, and he remained at the MMA for another 14 years. Bill 

left the museum in 2003. 

After so many years of devoted work in NYC and concurrent 

travel to Florida to take care of his ill mother, Bill moved west 

to fulfill a childhood dream that had been fostered by spending 

summers at a camp in Arizona. He moved to Los Angeles, 

where he bought a condominium in the Marina Del Rey area, 

continued all of his hobbies, and took up day trading. He loved 

his new city—the beaches, nature hikes, historic landmarks all 

contributed to his pleasure at being settled in a new place with a 

new career.  

Bill had recently decided to move back to Boston to be 

near his sister Anne, her family, and his entire extended family. 

He was an adoring brother to his two sisters and uncle to their 

families—Beth in Kentucky and Anne in Boston. They all 

looked forward to having him near. He was meticulous in his 

gift giving, making sure his family always got proper educational 

history and science books, as well as choosing items particular 

and special to each one. 

His rare gift of memory for everything he read and experi-

enced touched all who knew him in a very remarkable way. He 

lived life fully with all of his senses and he had many more plans. 

He will be deeply missed always.
