Unabomber Lists '8 Life Sentences' As Awards In Alumni Profile

Ted Kaczynski, better known as the Unabomber, wanted to make sure his fellow Harvard University alumni knew what he has been up to.

In an alumni report for the class of 1962, ahead of their 50th reunion, the Boston Globe reports that Kaczynski listed "8 life sentences" under the Awards section. If anyone wants to reach him, he listed his home address as "No. 04475-046, US Penitentiary—Max, P.O. Box 8500, Florence, CO 8126-8500.”

In the back of the "Harvard and Radcliffe Classes of 1962 -- Fiftieth Anniversary Report," Kaczynski was listed in the state-by-state listings as a Colorado resident.

"He’s more famous than anyone else in our class," Gary G. Peterson, a '62 Harvard grad, recently said in a separate article in the Harvard Crimson.

Kaczynski was accepted to Harvard at the age of 16, where he received an undergraduate degree. But later in life, he evaded authorities for two decades while he terrorized victims with a mail-bombing campaign, killing three people and injuring 20 more.

The victims of his bombings are not amused at Kaczynski's listing in the 50th anniversary report.

"Kaczynski is a con artist. He’s a serial killer, he’s a murderer," Susan Mosser, a widow of one of the victims, told the Globe. "Everything is a game for him to push people’s buttons.”


The alumni association responsible for publishing Kaczynski's entry apologized on Wednesday evening.

"While all members of the class who submit entries are included," the Harvard Alumni Association said in a statement Wednesday evening, "we regret publishing Kaczynski's references to his convictions and apologize for any distress that it may have caused others."
