Ted Kaczynski

Ted Kaczynski, also known as the Unabomber, renounced modern society in 1969 and moved to a ten-by-twelve-foot cabin in Lincoln, Montana. From 1978 to 1995 he mailed at least sixteen bombs, which killed three people and injured twenty-nine. Kaczynski sent a 35,000-word manifesto to the Washington Post and the New York Times, offering to end his bombing campaign if a major newspaper or magazine published it. Sentenced to four lifetimes in prison, Kaczynski is incarcerated at the supermax prison in Florence, Colorado. Kaczynski matriculated at Harvard University at the age of sixteen; in 2012 his alma mater apologized for including the entry he had sent for his class’ fiftieth reunion, which listed his occupation as “prisoner.”
