Theodore (Ted) Kaczynski is a convicted US criminal who used letter bombs against various individuals from 1978 to 1995 as part of an anti-technology delusion.

The Unabomber, named for his initial attacks on universities and airlines, ("un" in his FBI code name was short for university, and "a" referred to airlines), was responsible for placing or mailing 16 package bombs and letter bombs that resulted in three deaths and nearly two dozen injuries in the United States.

After one of the longest and most expensive manhunts in the nation's history, the FBI seized Ted Kaczynski, a Harvard-educated mathematician turned recluse, who later pleaded guilty for the attacks.
