Joseph Kaye: 1912-1961
A NOTED AUTHORITY on generation of electricity directly from heat, Joseph Kaye, '34, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at M.I.T., died on March 20. Professor Kaye had been associated with the Institute since 1939, and was co-inventor of a thermo-electron engine.
Born in Malden, he receive both his bachelor's degree and doctorate at M.I.T. and was for two years an A. D. Little post-doctorate fellow in chemistry. He became a research assistant in the Division of Industrial Coöperation in 1939, instructor in Mechanical Engineering in 1940, director of the Research Laboratory of Heat Transfer in Electronics in 1952, and a professor in 1955.
He collaborated on the production of The Thermodynamic Properties of Air (1945), and Gas Tables (1948), and was co-author of Direct Conversion of Heat into Electricity (1960). He was a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a member of several professional and honorary societies. Professor Kaye is survived by his wife, Ida; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Kaminsky; two brothers, Dr. Abraham Kaye and David Kaye; a sister, Mrs. Rose Levitts; and four sons, Leonard, Harvey, Sidney, and Charles, all of Boston.
