KUHN--Harold W., loving husband, father, and grandfather, and professor emeritus of mathematics and economics at Princeton University, died at home on July 2. A pioneer in game theory and nonlinear programming, esteemed mentor to generations of students, staunch advocate for progressive causes and human rights, he conducted his life as a game of skill, yet knew it is a game of chance. He is mourned by his wife of 64 years, Estelle (nee Henkin), sons Cliff, Nick, and Jonathan, daughters-in-law Kathie, Beth and Michele, and was beloved "Grumpa" to Mike, Josh, Jeremy, Gabe, Lee, Emily and Jeffrey. No public service is planned; donations in his memory may be made to the ACLU.
