The Unabomber, also known as Theodore "Ted" Kaczynski, is currently serving eight life sentences for killing three people and injuring 23 others with a series of mail bombs. But that doesn't mean that he doesn't want his old classmates to know what he's up to, the Boston Globe reported

Kaczynski, who graduated from Harvard in 1962, submitted an eerie entry to the Ivy League school's latest alumni directory, listing his occupation as “Prisoner,” and his home address as “No. 04475-046, US Penitentiary—Max, P.O. Box 8500, Florence, CO 8126-8500," according to the Globe. 

As for his awards, the Unabomber boasts about his “eight life sentences, issued by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, 1998," ABC News reported

Fellow Harvard alum and venture capitalist Alex Taussig tweeted the page, calling it "morbidly amusing":  

The infamous US terrorist is often referred to as "a genius-turned madman," the Daily Mail reported. He attended Harvard at age 16 and went on to earn his PhD in mathematics from the University of Michigan.

“Kaczynski is a con artist," Susan Mosser, the widow of Thomas Mosser, an ad executive who was killed in 1994 when one of the Unabomber's packages exploded in their New Jersey home, told the Globe. "He’s a serial killer, he’s a murderer. Everything is a game for him to push people’s buttons.”

Kaczynski's Harvard class of 1962 is convening in Cambridge this week for its 50-year reunion, according to ABC News.
