He received his B.A. in 1932 and Ph.D. in 1937 from Cambridge University. Kinsey worked with the Canadian National Research Council, Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, and Chalk River Laboratories from 1944 to 1954; acted as the deputy chief scientific officer at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment in Harwell, England (1955-1958); and joined the University of Texas at Austin as professor of physics (1958-1976) and director of the Center for Nuclear Studies (1958-1969). He was named professor emeritus in 1976, when he retired from UT Austin.
