Professor Josiah S. Carberry’s Thirty Under Thirty

Josiah Carberry Thirty Under Thirty

Everything about the history and legend of Josiah S. Carberry can seem bigger, faster, and more intense than any other history or legend in the world. The facts or general lack of them can overwhelm even the best and brightest scholars. While we have for decades known about Carberry’s ungrammatical wife Laura, his daughters Patricia and Lois Carberry, and his assistant Truman Grayson—Brown researchers are now exploring new leads regarding Carberry’s friends, relatives, and people with whom he may or may not have been acquainted in recent years. What follows are descriptions of the thirty most likely recent Brown graduates under thirty to know, be related to, or have experience with the Professor.

Cary Posiah is a 27-year-old alumna of Brown. She is a musician in a band that is only interested in making unexpected sounds that feel stressful, are barely noticeable, and are usually ignored. Some have categorized her music as uncategorizable, but the band itself, which doesn’t have a name or any recorded music to date, does not believe in the term “uncategorizable.” Cary Posiah and her band know exactly what they are doing and who they are even if no one else does.

Ahmandasiah Cahmandaberry starred in a reality show the year after she graduated. The show revolved around the lives of eight recent college graduates all living in the same house as they struggled to figure out what to do with the rest of their lives.
