John Mortenson was a bright, young mathematics major at an Ivy League university. He was a few years younger than the other freshmen and to further outcast him, he was overly quiet and serious. Most of his dorm mates cannot recall a time when he smiled. They do not recall him ever laughing but do remember his strange and perpetual sneer which perhaps was meant as a smile or a laugh, though there was nothing jovial about it. It was a condescending sneer.
John was the poorest of the students around him having come from a blue collar family of immigrants. He received a full scholarship that made it possible for him to attend this school of boys mostly born with a silver spoon in their mouths. He owned about three different outfits that became noticeably tattered and ragged as the months went by.
