Hicks studied at Lawrence College in Appleton, Wisconsin, before entering the newspaper business in his early twenties as a reporter for the Oshkosh Northwestern. He eventually became editor and publisher of the paper. Hicks also served as United States Minister to Peru (1889-1893) under President Benjamin Harrison and United States Minister to Chile (1905-1909) during the administration of Theodore Roosevelt.
