Biographical Note

Thomas DeArman Kinney was born on March 19, 1909, Franklin, Pennsylvania. He received his BA from the University of Pittsburgh (1931) and his MD from Duke University (1936). Kinney completed residencies at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, New Haven Hospital, and Boston City Hospital from 1936 to 1943. He held hospital appointments in pathology at Boston City Hospital (1943-1944), Peter Bent Brigham Hospital (1944-1947), Cleveland Metropolitan General Hospital (1947-1960), Crile VA Hospital (1947-1960), and Duke University Hospital (1960-1977). His teaching appointments in pathology included Yale University (1938-1939), Boston University (1940-1941), Tufts College Medical School (1941-1944), Harvard Medical School (1944-1947), Western Reserve University School of Medicine (1947-1960).

Kinney joined Duke University in 1960 as a professor and chair of the Department of Pathology (1960-1977) and chair of pathology (1960-1965). He was also R.J. Reynolds Professor of Medical Education (1967-1977), director of medical and allied health education (1969-1974), and associate provost (1973-1974). During his tenure at Duke University, Kinney developed the Division of Medical Education department which came to be known for its ability attract excellent house officers. Kinney successfully pioneered a two-year program to train pathology assistants, participated in the development of the MD-PhD program, and developed a plan to integrate medical school coursework with the premedical and residency years. Duke University medical students recognized his outstanding teaching by naming a distinguished teaching award in his honor. Additionally, his colleagues dedicated the Thomas DeArman Kinney Central Teaching Laboratory in his honor (1968).

As a researcher, Kinney invented many pieces of equipment for use in the laboratory, including the Lab Tek, disposable knife blades, and a processor for electron microscopy specimens. Kinney also collaborated with the Cleveland Zoo to describe defects and diseases in a chimpanzee, bear, and kangaroo. As a researcher, Kinney published more than 150 articles on the nutritional function of iron, pathways of iron metabolism, and issues in medical education. He served as the editor of "Bulletin of the International Association of Medical Museums" (1945-1949), "Laboratory Investigation" (1952-1967), and the "American Journal of Pathology" (1967-1977). Kinney served in various capacities with twenty seven academic and honor societies, including the Academy of Medicine of Cleveland, the Cleveland Medical Library Association, the Tissue Culture Association, Diabetes Association of Greater Cleveland, the American Association of Pathologists and Bacteriologists, the American Society of Human Genetics, the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, the Area Heart Society, North Carolina Society of Pathologists, the American Society of Experimental Pathology, the Association of Pathology, the Council of American Societies, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, and Universities Associated for Research and Education in Pathology. Kinney also served in a variety of capacities to the National Institute of Health. Kinney was also a member of Sigma Xi, Nu Sigma Nu, Theta Delta Chi, and Alpha Omega Alpha. At Duke, he received the Duke University School of Medicine Alumni Association's Distinguished Teaching Award (1975).

Kinney retired as chair of the Department of Pathology in 1975. In 1977, the American Association of Pathologists presented Kinney with its highest award, the Gold-Headed Cane, for recognition of Kinney's "representing the highest ideals in medicine and pathology". He remained a professor of pathology and as the R. J. Reynolds Industries Professor of Medical Education until his death.

Kinney married Eleanor Shepard Roberts in 1939. They had four children. Kinney died on June 12, 1977.
