Unabomber Updates Harvard University Alumni Book
BOSTON (AP) — Harvard alumni attending their 50th class reunion this week are getting updates on classmates — including Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.
Kaczynski graduated in 1962 and is serving life without the possibility of parole in a federal prison after pleading guilty in 1998 to setting 16 explosions that killed three people, including two in Sacramento and injured 23 others during a nationwide bombing spree between 1978 and 1995.
In an alumni directory, he lists his occupation as “prisoner” and under awards lists “eight life sentences.”
The alumni association says it regrets including the information.
A Harvard spokesman says the update was submitted by Kaczynski but could not immediately say how the university confirmed that. A message seeking comment was left with Kaczynski’s attorney.
The Harvard-trained mathematician railed against the effects of advanced technology and led authorities on the nation’s longest and costliest manhunt before his brother tipped off law enforcement in 1996.
