Biographical/Historical note

Dr. Stewart A. Kingsbury was born in Wayne, Michigan, in 1923. He received his undergraduate degree in Naval Science in 1946, his MA on political Science from Georgetown University in 1950, an MA in Russian Area Studies in 1961 and in General Linguistics in 1963 from the University of Michigan, and his Ph.D. in General Linguistics from the University of Michigan in 1968.

In the late 1960's, he became active in a computerized dialect survey of Upper Michigan English. In 1975, he received a National Bicentennial Award for his design of a computerized data base for the US Place Name Survey, for his work as co-chairman of the US Place Name Survey for the State of Michigan. His affiliations included the Modern Language Association, the Midwest Modern Language Association, the American Dialect Society, the American Name Society, and the Michigan Linguistic Society.

Dr. Kingsbury taught English as a foreign language at the University of Michigan, held subsequent posts at Olivet College, the University of Indiana and taught English and linguistics at Northern Michigan University from 1969 until his retirement in 1991. Dr. Kingsbury died 24 October 1994.
