He received degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of Kentucky and was president of the general contracting firm of Coleman & Davis, Inc. In the 1930s his interest turned toward Kentucky history. His first book, MASONRY IN THE BLUEGRASS, was published in 1933. In 1936 Coleman retired to his Lexington farm in order to devote time to historic research and writing. He wrote more than a dozen books and pamphlets, including STAGECOACH DAYS IN THE BLUEGRASS (1935), SLAVERY TIMES IN KENTUCKY (1940), A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF KENTUCKY HISTORY (1940), LEXINGTON DURING THE CIVIL WAR (1968), and HISTORIC KENTUCKY (1967).See also the J.
