Did I just read that?

From an article on the youngest college graduates and where they are now: "Sidis currently resides in Portsmouth, New Hampshire at the South Cemetery. He passed on July 17, 1944 from a cerebral hemorrhage, but leaves behind a considerable legacy of literature, history, patents, and mathematical and transportation research. Some of the work had been published under pseudonyms to protect his privacy, however."

Since dead people need so much privacy.....

Ed. note 2013: the source of this quote asked me to remove the link, so I did.
