Darwin Hindman (born 1933) is the most recent former mayor of Columbia, Missouri. He was elected mayor in 1995 and finished his fifth elected term (15 years total) in April, 2010 after announcing he would not be running for re-election at the end of that term. During Hindman's term as mayor, Columbia and three other cities received 25 million dollars in federal funding to run a pilot project to promote bicycling and walking as an alternative to driving. In 2009 he received the Leadership for Healthy Communities Award along with mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City and mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco.
Education and early life
Hindman was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1933 and moved to Columbia in 1935. He received degrees in political science and law from the University of Missouri (1955 and 1961 respectively). Hindman flew bombers and transport planes during two tours of active duty as a pilot in the United States Air Force. He has lived in Columbia nearly all of his life.
Hindman has been involved with the Columbia Tomorrow Committee, the Missouri State Parks Advisory Board, Citizens Campaign for the Katy Trail State Park, the Missouri Economic Development Finance Board, the Missouri Environmental Improvement Board, and the Missouri Energy Resource Authority. He is the current president of the Missouri Rails-to-Trails Coalition and former chairman of the Katy Trail Coalition.
He is an advocate of building a pedestrian-based transportation system in Columbia and is active in political groups and committees across the state of Missouri. He is also a supporter of many of Columbia's progressive policies such as recycling programs and smoking bans.
