Scientist. Best known for his pioneering work delving into Human Sexuality. Alfred Charles Kinsey was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, June 23, 1894. He attended Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine (1914-1916), graduating magna cum laude with a B.S. in biology and psychology. He received his Sc.D. in biology from Harvard University in September 1919, and came to Indiana University as an assistant professor of zoology in August 1920. He established a solid academic reputation for his biology tests and his research in taxonomy and evolution. By 1937, American Men of Science listed him as one of their starred scientists. Then in 1938, Kinsey took over coordination of the new marriage course at Indiana University, and soon after began gathering case histories of sexual behavior. In 1940, President Herman B Wells gave Kinsey a choice: to continue either with the marriage course or with his sexuality research project. Kinsey and his staff collected over 18,000 interviews, and published Sexual Behavior in the Human Male in 1948 and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female in 1953. He died in 1956 at the age of 62.
