Thomas Kuhn was named a Guggenheim Fellow in 1954 and was awarded the George Sarton Medal in the History of Science in 1982. He held honorary degrees from institutions that included Columbia University and the universities of Notre Dame, Chicago, Padua, and Athens. He suffered from cancer during the last years of his life. Thomas Kuhn died on Monday, June 17, 1996, at the age of 73 at his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He was survived by his wife and three children.
While there’s no guarantee Kuhn will make the Patriots’ 53-man roster in a crowded defensive tackle room, coach Bill Belichick appears to appreciate his potential. That, if nothing else, gives Kuhn a chance.
