Andrew Kohut, Founding Director of Pew Research Center, Dies at 73

Andrew Kohut, a leading pollster who for three decades mined the public’s views on subjects like sex, race and religion but who, as an impartial professional, rarely revealed his own, died on Tuesday in Baltimore. He was 73.


The cause was complications of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, his wife, Diane Colasanto, said.


Mr. Kohut (pronounced KO-hut) was the founding director of the Pew Research Center and served as its president from 2004 until his retirement in 2013.
