Edwin Kuh, 1925-1986.

Simoni’s husband Edwin Kuh, died on Monday 9th June, 1986. He was involved in Democratic Party politics in the United States of America. He was an adviser to Robert F. Kennedy during Kennedy's 1968 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination and to the party's 1972 nominee, former Sen. George McGovern of South Dakota.

Later, Kuh also served on U.S. President's Materials Policy Commission and the Economic Advisory Panel of the U.S. Postal Service and was adviser to the governments of Greece, China and Costa Rica.

John Kenneth Galbraith, economics professor emeritus at Harvard, said Kuh also should be remembered for an early contribution to the idea of affirmative action. "Some 15 or more years ago, he was one of a group of economists who urged that the civil rights movement be affirmed by a 10-year program by which large corporations and the federal, state and local governments would bring minorities and women into higher-level employment in the same proportions that they existed in the working force," Galbraith said.

It was in the field of Economics, and in particular the pioneer in field of econometrics that he established a world wide reputation. He headed Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Center for Computational Research in Economics and Management Science from its inception in 1978, and was credited with discovering econometrics, a theory holding that productivity varies at stages in the business cycle. He noted that productivity improves sharply during the cycle's recovery phase, peaks before the economy peaks and declines before the economy slides into recession. The systems Kuh developed are widely used in Europe by major banks and research organizations.

Little wonder that the seminal book he edited with David A. Belsley in 1985, Model Reliability, is still available through MIT Press. The book details how to assess the specification, strengths, weaknesses, limits, and sensitive features of a particular economic model.

Edwin Kuh was a man of considerable social, cultural, political, and intellectual stature.

Mama at School Kondolianika 1908

(Note of Admin: this is such an important picture - there must be 1000s of people related to those in the picture. I've increased the contrast so you can see the faces a little better. Thank you George for this amazing submission.)

This photograph was taken at about 1908. The girls and their teacher Katina are seated at the door steps of their school at Kondolianika. My mother Despina Leontsini her sister Eleni, her cousin Diamanta Leontsini and their closest friend Kyriakoula Leontsini the mother of the surgeon Manolis Kalokairinos and several other girls relatives and friends are posing and showing us how meticulously and properly dressed they are for the ocasion. Note that this same teacher was still about in 1942, when we were in Kythera, during the war, and she was my teacher too for one year.
