===Birth===
Alfred Kinsey was born on June 23, 1894, in Hoboken, New Jersey, to Alfred Seguine Kinsey and Sarah Ann Charles. Kinsey was the eldest of three children. His mother had received little formal education; his father was a professor at Stevens Institute of Technology. His parents were rather poor for most of Kinsey's childhood. Consequently, the family often could not afford proper medical care, which may have led to young Kinsey's receiving inadequate treatment for a variety of diseases including [[rickets]], [[rheumatic fever]], and typhoid fever. This health record indicates that Kinsey received suboptimal exposure to sunlight (the cause of rickets in those days before milk and other foods were fortified with [[vitamin D]]) and lived in unsanitary conditions for at least part of his childhood. [[Rickets]], leading to a curvature of the [[vertebral column|spine]], resulted in a slight stoop that was to prevent Kinsey from being drafted in 1917 for [[World War I]].
