             Biographical note 
             John Jay Dickey (1842-1934), methodist minister and educator, was born in Fleming County, Kentucky. As an educator, Dickey wanted to establish schools in every county in Eastern Kentucky. In 1883, he helped found Jackson Academy, an elementary and high school, in Jackson, Breathitt County, Kentucky, and served as its principal until 1891. At that time he became the editor of the 
                 Jackson Hustler  and provided a newspaper column for the academy. Additionally, in 1891 the academy was taken over by Central University of Richmond, Kentucky. In 1888 Dickey was elected president of the Breathitt County Teachers Association. Dickey stayed in Jackson until 1895 when he left to help establish the Sue Bennett Memorial School in London, Laurel County, Kentucky.
