Notes: 

     In Winslow's 40th Anniversary address before the SAB, he mentions that Kinnicutt was a "gracious and aristocratic teacher of sanitary science at Worcester."

     With Eddy, he studied the effect of acid iron wastes of local wire mills upon sewage.  At the 1899 SAB meeting, he presented a paper "On the Changes of Opinion in England in Favor of Bacterial Purification of Sewage," in which he reports the trend to viewing bacterial treatment as the more efficient method.
