He joined the Lyndon B. Johnson administration in 1963, working first for the Department of Commerce and then for the Executive Office of the President.

As President of Haverford's Executive Committee, he oversaw a restructuring of the Development Office and the creation of Haverford Magazine. Haverford created an annual award in his name to honor exemplary service in student career development. Kaye and his wife, Cindy, also endowed the Kaye Prize in Theatre Arts, which recognizes student contributions to theater in the Haverford community.
