On May 5, 1982 I walked into the Computer Science Department
Fri Aug 11, 2017 1:04pm

office at Vanderbilt University to get my mail before teaching class. The reception area was demolished. 20 minutes earlier, our Department Secretary, Janet Smith had opened a package containing a bomb sent by Unabomber Ted Kaczynski addressed to our Chairman Patrick Fischer, and it had exploded, severely injuring her hands and causing other wounds. It took 2 years of physical therapy to restore her use of her hands. She did not deserve this mindless, demented act.

I guess I can count myself lucky that I run late and did not arrive 20 minutes sooner, or I might not be around to relate this incident.

The recent series on TV about the Unabomber brought back the memory of this horror.

It took our government an additional 14 years to arrest Kaczynski on April 3, 1996. I am wondering just how effective our government is.

      Maybe that made him harder to catch. In 1982 I was in high school. My school of about 2,400 students only had 1 computer science room.
