The 50th reunion for Harvard’s University’s undergraduate class of 1962 took a strange turn when Ted Kaczynski, the year’s most infamous graduate, sent in a status update that was published in the alumni book.
Kaczynski, better known as the Unabomber, was convicted in 1998 of killing three people and injuring 23 others in a mail bombing campaign against modern technology that was waged for almost two decades.
He is jailed for life in the maximum security prison in Florence, Colorado, and thus unable to join hundreds of former Harvard and Radcliffe classmates for four days of events in Cambridge, Massachusetts, that wrap up on Thursday.
In the alumni guide, Kaczynski, 70, listed his occupation as “prisoner.” Under awards, he notes “Eight life sentences, issued by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, 1998.”
Not to be outshone by the achievements of other classmates, Kaczynski also listed his collection of anti-technological rants, “Technological Slavery: The Collected Writings of Theodore J. Kaczynski, a.k.a. ‘The Unabomber.’” The book was published in 2010 by Feral House.
