In the summer of 1973, he and Sam worked out the string theory at his lake cabin in the Berkshires. When Sam was Peter Langly, an FBI agent assigned to protect Dana Barrenger, he took her to the cabin, assuming they would be safe. After it was all over, the professor arrived. "Don't you know who I am?" Sam shouted. "I'm Sam Be--" Then he leaped. LoNigro and Dana Barrenger later married. (Charm)

He may also be the professor who told Tom that a brain like Sam's only comes along once in a generation. (Home)
