Character Description & Notes
Bonner worked in the copper mines in Colorado before the Great War. he joined the Army Corps of Engineers and was assigned to intelligence work. His experience with graft and greed in the armmed services have sickened him to the Fat Cats and he has become a practicing Socialist upon return to civilian life. He does not want to overthrow the government but he does want the miners to get decent wages and safe working conditions. He is very smart and well aware that his views are liable to get him in trouble, so he mostly keeps his mouth shut. His connections in the Army got him his job at Penn, though he knows many of the professors think him too working class to be a teacher.
