Garrett Chalfin, of New York City, is a first-year student at the University of Chicago, taking classes in biology, "Human Being and Citizen" and "Classics of Social and Political Thought."

This puzzle was a long time in the making. He thought of the theme idea over a year ago, then kept coming back to it until he felt he had it just right. Garrett writes, "I love subtle themes that slowly emerge to the solver."

Garrett Chalfin, 18, is a senior at Riverdale Country School in New York City. Next year he'll begin studying philosophy at the University of Chicago. Last June, after chancing upon this puzzle's theme idea, he stayed up until 4:00 a.m. thinking of examples. He finished the puzzle while at summer camp, demonstrating to his co-counselors how to fill a crossword grid.
