Alumni in the News: Dr. John Higginbotham '61

Dr John Higginbotham '61 Leaves Legacy of Christmas Joy:

After graduating from John Carroll, John attended Birmingham-Southern College where he got his Pre-Med degree. He then headed to UAB where he attained his Master's in Microbiology as well as his MD. From there he was an orthopaedic surgeon in private practice as well as at SportsMed in Huntsville for 35 years.

As a child John was very involved with the Boy Scouts but also loved Christmas decorations. He would ask his mom to buy them whenever they went on sale.

About 25 years ago John started building elaborate Christmas decorations one of which was a Snowman made of cast plaster. Next, he used wheelchair parts to create a train. He spent hours going through the lights making sure each one worked. Eventually, he created the Carousel that is featured in the video. John passed away March 19, 2019 but he left a beautiful gift that continues to bring joy to many in the Huntsville area today. Click here for the entire story from WHNT!
