About the Author

William M. Hinman was an educator and a poet. Born in a log cabin near Chariton, Iowa, in 1866, he moved several times with his family and by age fifteen lived on a farm near Colmar, Illinois. With little opportunity for education, he had yet to crack a schoolbook-until the Colmar school engaged a new teacher. Hinman was so eager to learn that he progressed rapidly, and he later graduated from Macomb Normal (now Western Illinois University) and taught for over twenty-one years in high schools, as well as instructing in history and mathematics at his college for two years.

After teaching, Hinman became a high school principal for several years before transitioning from education to business as the manager of the Farmers' Elevator and Produce Company in Adair, Illinois.

William Hinman married his wife, Verda, in 1885, and together they had four children.
