Kinnick 1940 Census Substitute

Kinnick 1940 "Census Substitute" based on City Directories at

When I entered "KINNICK" as the surname, there were 112 entries. The following list was created by only counting each entry once (where there were multiple city directory year entries). That got us down to 70. Further analysis is needed, but this is a good list to work with for my purposes. At the end of the list I'll make some notable observations for purposes of this "first pass!"

First pass notes:
1. The most famous KINNICK is Heisman Trophy Winner Nile C Kinnick, Jr., University of Iowa football great and U.S. Navy pilot who died in WWII. He is listed at his dorm residence in Iowa City in 1938. In 1940, he is listed with his father and brother at their home in Omaha, NE, prior to returning to Iowa City for law school.

2. For me, it was neat to see my uncle, Leo (my mother's older brother), listed in school in Des Moines, in 1936 [this is the year my mother graduated from high school]. Leo was at Commercial College to become a banker, which he did.

3. Mom and Leo's first cousin, Ila [I knew her as "Ila Jean"] is listed in Des Moines, as a maid. I think she was at beautician school, as well.

4. I do recognize many of the names, especially those in Montana, Florida and California as persons in my database, identified from 1930 and earlier census data. It will be fun to work through the further identification process.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
