Friday flashback

Time magazine described Alfred Kinsey as “a friendly man with a passionate interest in people” in its Aug. 24, 1953 cover story that preceded the Sept. 14 publication by W.B. Saunders Co. of Sexual Behavior in the Human Female, the 842-page tome that retailed for $8. Less than six years before, Kinsey’s research regarding male sexual behavior had been published. Time said that Kinsey “has become almost a recluse. He sees less and less of his old faculty friends, though most of them still like him.” Actress and writer Cornelia Otis Skinner, who Time claimed was a part of Kinsey’s “female sample,” said that Kinsey “has the skill of a great actor in drawing you into what he is doing.”
