Richard Saltonstall Kinsey

Richard Saltonstall Kinsey died peacefully at home on July 23, 2017, at the age of 94. He lived at the Acorn Glen assisted living residence in Princeton, New Jersey.

Kinsey was born in New York City on May 10, 1923, the younger son of Edwin Marshall Kinsey and Wilhelmina Patton Kinsey, and was raised in Riverton and Cinnaminson, New Jersey.  He lived in Princeton, N.J. (1946–1948); Moorestown, N.J.  (1948–1971); several towns in South Jersey and Oklahoma (1972-1978); Floyd, Va. (1979–1981); and Haddon Township, N.J. (1981–2011), before returning to Princeton in 2011.

Valedictorian of his class at Moorestown High School, Kinsey received an A.B. in philosophy, Phi Beta Kappa, from Middlebury College in Vermont in 1944 and pursued graduate studies in philosophy at Princeton University from 1946 to 1948.  During World War II he was a Lieutenant junior grade in the United States Naval Reserve and served on a patrol class escort (PCE) in the North Pacific.

After graduate school Kinsey worked at the family farm in Moorestown for a year and then followed his father into the stock brokerage business.  He worked for firms in Philadelphia and then in the early 1960s opened the first stock brokerage office in Burlington County, New Jersey.  He enjoyed raising his family on the family peony nursery and Christmas tree farm in Moorestown, where one year he raised two cattle named Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.  Kinsey then quit a conventional career and marched to the beat of his own drum for the rest of his life.  He summited Mount Rainier in Washington State in 1973 and Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in 1974, having climbed Mauna Loa in Hawaii during the war in 1945 and many mountains and trails in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine since childhood.

Kinsey was a man of wide-ranging intellectual and artistic interests.  Admiring especially Bertrand Russell and Alfred North Whitehead, Kinsey studied analytical philosophy and its history throughout his life. A self-taught calligrapher and book maker, Kinsey was particularly proud of a solo exhibit of his art at the then Roanoke (Va.) Museum of Art in 1981; his inclusion in an exhibit on book production in the Rosenbach rare book library in Philadelphia in 1980; and an alphabet he lettered in burnished gold and blue lapis lazuli on vellum for the Graphic Arts Collection of the Princeton University Library. Other passions included poetry, the transcendentalists, genealogy, history, anthropology, rare books, photography, and the furniture of George Nakashima. He was a prodigious correspondent who wrote letters with his distinctive, beautiful script, and he was known for his wit and sense of humor.

Survived by his son David North Kinsey of Princeton, New Jersey; two grandsons, Rafe Hand Kinsey of New York City and Alex Hand Kinsey of Atlanta; daughter-in-law Susanne Hand of Princeton; and ten nieces and nephews, Kinsey was predeceased by his son Martin Townsend Kinsey in 2008 and his ex-wife Janet Elizabeth Townsend Roberts (Kinsey) in 2007.

Kinsey donated his body to Temple University Medical School through the Human Gifts Registry of Philadelphia.  The family will be holding a private service of remembrance.

Reuben Cohen, 95, passed away peacefully at his home on Meadowbrook Drive on July 23, 2017. A longtime Princeton resident, Reuben was a founder and former president of the research firm Response Analysis Corporation, a past president of the American Association for Public Opinion Research, and a past president of the Jewish Center of Princeton. A private man, known for his integrity and keen intellect, Reuben cared deeply about social justice and donated generously to progressive causes.

Reuben was born on November 26, 1921, in Washington, D.C., where one of his first jobs was as a paperboy hawking newspapers at FDR’s inauguration. He received his BS and MA from American University.

Under contract to CBS in 1964, Reuben headed the groundbreaking team that ushered in the now standard practice of using exit polling to project the outcome of presidential elections during election night TV coverage. Well-recognized in his field, Reuben was called to testify before Congress as an expert in statistical sampling techniques.

After retiring in 1986, Reuben spent time traveling, creating a Japanese garden, and cheering for the Washington Redskins.
