Our brother Edmund Kinate was born in DePere in 1914. After his freshman year at the college, he joined the Order in 1932 and was solemnly professed in 1937.

After spending the summer of 1939 ministering at Our Lady of Ransom in Hingham , Montana , he was transferred to Southeast Catholic in 1940, where he taught history and religion. 1946 found him at Archmere, and ’47 back at Southeast.  In 1948, he was back in Hingham, and in ’49, back at the college and high school. In 1953, he assisted at St. Joseph in Oneida and in 1954, at St. Joe’s in Madison.

He bounced to Bishop Neumann in 1956, then back to the college in 1957, and back to Neumann in 1963. Ed was an avid bridge player and without failknew after the bidding was over just what cards each player held. During recreation, he would usually stop in the T.V. room to see what the confreres were watching, click through all the channels, and then turn off the set and walk out!  This was especially "loved" during Packer games!

Ed was a hemophiliac, and in later life suffered from leukemia. He died on Sunday, July 9, 1972 at the age of 57.
