Thomas Kinkaid's Chief of Staff

Does anyone know who was Admiral Thomas Kinkaid's (Commander, Seventh Fleet) chief of staff during the Battle of Leyte Gulf? I know he's mentioned in the book Eagle Against the Sun but I seem to have misplaced my copy.

Captain Richard Harold Cruzen. USNA Class of 1920. Born 4/28/1897. Retired, Vice Admiral 6/1/1954 (probably a ‘tombstone’ promotion from active rank of Rear Admiral since he had a Legion of Merit). Died 4-15-70.
