Biographical Sketch

Philip A. Kint taught chemistry at the University of Toledo from 1961 to 1987.  He was born on June 24, 1921, in Hutchinson, Kansas.  Kint attended Findlay College and earned an A.B. in 1943.  He later attended Ohio State University, earning a master’s degree in Chemistry in 1947.  While at OSU, he married Hester Overmyer in 1945.  Together, the Kints had four children: Barbara Jane (1948), William Alfred (1950), Richard Alan (1953), and Elizabeth Ann (1957).  


Shortly before marriage, Kint began his teaching career at Grand Rapids Rural School.  He taught high school science and math there from 1942 to 1944.  After that he landed a job at Conneaut High School in Ohio as a teacher of Chemistry and Science from 1944 to 1946.  After his experience teaching in high school, Kint decided to start his first university teaching job at Bowling Green State University, where he served as an instructor of chemistry from 1947 to 1952.  While at BGSU, he became a member of the American Chemical Society in 1948, and he would remain active in the organization for over 50 years.  In 1952, Kint put his teaching career on hold and worked for a business called Allied Chemical Corporation in Toledo, where he worked as a research chemist until 1961. 


After his work at Allied, Kint returned to teaching as a chemistry instructor at the University of Toledo in 1961.  During his early career at UT (then TU), Kint was involved in many clubs and activities, such as the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), the Cub Scout Pack 55 (served as a Cubmaster), the Faith Lutheran Church Sunday School (served as General Superintendent), and the Northwestern Ohio Chemistry Teachers Association (served as Treasurer from 1966 to 1970).  He was promoted to Assistant Professor in 1973 and then to Associate Professor in 1985.  In 1987, he retired with the rank of Professor Emeritus of Chemistry.  He continued teaching as a superannuate, and officially retired on March 22nd, 1991.  Kint died on March 16, 1999.  He was well respected by many students and colleagues and will always be remembered not only for good teaching skills, but also for maintaining high standards as well.
