The entirety of Kingman's formal higher education was spent at Yale, where he obtained both a BA and an MFA. He also studied extensively at the Rhode Island School of Design (with John Frazier, Frederic Sisson and Nancy Jones) during high school, and for a year after high school, Kingman studied at the Fogg Art Museum with Edward Forbes and Paul Sachs. Early in his career (he was in his third year at Yale), he was commissioned by Horace M. Albright to paint seven paintings of park scenes at Sequoia, Mt. Rainier, Grand Teton, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Yosemite and Crater Lake. Among other projects, he received commissions to paint murals in US Post Offices in Hayattsville, Maryland, Kemmerer, Wyoming, and East Providence, Rhode Island. Kingman taught at Rhode Island School of Design for three years, soon after which he joined the OSS as a cartographer. After the war, Kingman became director of Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, Nebraska. In addition, he acted as consultant to the Smithsonian, and to the US Corps of Engineers for their exhibit of the Missouri River Powerhouse.
