Unabomber's 50th: "Awards - 8 life sentences, issued by U.S. District Court, 1998"
'Distinguished' Harvard alumnus Ted Kaczynski brags about his
'eight life sentences' in alumni magazine update for 50-year reunion
The latest issue of Harvard University carries an update from one of its more 'distinguished' alumni -- Ted Kaczynski -- just in time for his 50-year class reunion.
The Unabomber bragged about being 'awarded' eight life sentences by a federal judge. He was convicted in 1998 of killing three people and injuring 23 others with a series of 16 mail bombs sent between 1978 and 1995.
Kaczynski is often cited as being a genius-turned madman. He went to Harvard at age 16 and later earned a PhD in mathematics from the University of Michigan.
His Harvard class of 1962 is meeting this week for its 50-year reunion.
One of his classmates, Gary G. Peterson, told the Harvard Crimson that Kaczynski remains the most famous member of the class.
Alex Taussig, a venture capitalist at Boston-based Highland Capital and a Harvard grad himself, posted a photo of the listing in the Harvard alumni magazine and tweeted a photo with the caption, 'Ted Kaczynski's alumni update for his 50 year Harvard reunion. Morbidly amusing.'
While he is referred to here and in other sources as "convicted," Kaczynski actually pleaded guilty to charges and thus was never tried. Some view the case against Kaczynski as being highly problematical.
