He attended Scholfield's Commercial College in Providence, and worked for noted architects William R. Walker & Son for 6 years. He opened his office in Central Falls in 1887. In 1895, he moved it to the larger, neighboring city of Pawtucket. Between 1903 and 1904, Humes served as the mayor of Central Falls. Upon his death, Humes was buried in Moshassuck Cemetery in Central Falls.

Humes continued to practice at least through the early 1940s, but little is known of his work after 1910.
