Cracking the Code and the Media

In this series we track the progress of the group of Brown undergraduates working to decipher, translate, and contextualize the “Roger Williams Mystery Book” at the JCB.

Lucas Mason-Brown, one of our reporters for the Cracking the Code segment of this JCB Books Speak, has been getting a lot of play time in the media for his discoveries in decoding the “Mystery Book” of Roger Williams held by the JCB. He has been selected as one of 12 George J. Mitchell scholars for 2014 and will spend a year of postgraduate study in mathematics at Trinity College Dublin.

Watch his interview here conducted in the Maury A. Bromsen Simon Bolivar Room at the John Carter Brown Library.

Don’t miss the article about him and the project in the Boston Globe, December 5, 2012.
