John Samuel Kenyon, Biography 

            John S. Kenyon was head of the Hiram College English Department from 1916 until his retirement as a Professor Emeritus in 1944.  During his tenure at Hiram College J.S. Kenyon held various summer school teaching positions.  These positions included:  Wooster College, 1909 – 1910; Indiana University, 1915; the University of Michigan, 1919; and the University of Texas, 1928.  Prior to his teaching at Hiram College J.S. Kenyon began teaching at West Kentucky College in 1898-1899.  From 1899-1901 he taught Greek at Christian University in Canton, Missouri.  1903-1904 he was a fellow in English at University of Chicago.  1906-1916 he was an English professor at Butler University in Indianapolis.    

During his long career John S. Kenyon became very accomplished in his field.  He was regarded as the “dean” of American phoneticians.  He was the consulting editor for pronunciation and phonetics of the second edition of Webster’s New International Dictionary(1934).  He also was a co-editor of the Pronouncing Dictionary of American English.  J.S. Kenyon wrote American Pronunciation, an important book where he insisted on avoiding prescriptive decision on usage.  These three major publications are only a brief listing of his contributions to his field.

            During his long career J.S. Kenyon received several notable rewards and prizes.  In 1927 the University of London awarded the Soames Prize for Research in Phonetics to J.S. Kenyon.  In 1943 he received the Hiram College Alumni Award for Distinguished Service.  The Western Reserve University granted him an honorary doctorate in 1954.

            J.S. Kenyon graduated from Hiram College in 1898, and obtained his Masters Degree from the University of Chicago in 1903.  In 1908 he received his doctorate from Harvard University. 

            J.S. Kenyon was married to Myra Alice Pow in 1899.  They had two daughters together, Martha Elizabeth Kenyon and Elizabeth Sheldon Kenyon Andress.  Both daughters are now deceased.

            J.S. Kenyon was born in Medina, Ohio in 1874 and died September 6, 1959. 

Scope and Content
