College News and Departmental Notes: Death of Professor Helen Kinne

by Departmental notes - 1918

On Saturday, December 29, 1917, Miss Helen Kinne, professor of household arts, died of acute colitis, after an illness of only five days' duration. Miss Kinne had been absent from the College on sabbatical leave since May, 1916, having been granted an extension of the usual period on account of ill-health. Early last November she returned to the city, and was looking forward with keen interest to taking up her work again at the opening of the Spring Session. Her health, however, had not improved as she had hoped, and it is evident now that this acute culmination of long-standing conditions was inevitable within a few months at the latest. The funeral service was held on New Year's Day, in St. James's Chapel, Cathedral of St. John the Divine, where Miss Kinne was a regular attendant.

A significant contribution to the service to those who knew her keen pleasure in the Cathedral music was the subdued undertone throughout from the great organ, rendering selections which she especially loved.
