This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from George Ward, a former student of Philip Burnham Hicken:

I graduated from the "Art Institute of Boston", formally "The School Of Practical Art" in 1962, Phil Hicken was my fine arts instructor in 1960/61. He was a large, gruff (very raspy voice) and a fine instructor, certainly out of the ordinary and a man to remember.  I am much more familiar with his very contemporary work as shown on your website as #2. (This was obviously his passion at that time) I also know he had a great interest in serigraphy and I believe some background in the very beginnings of this form of art, I have seen his name in some books on this subject. The last time I saw "Mr. Hicken" was at our 10th class reunion in 1972 I think. He was an important part of our art education.
