Bernie Green was a very old man on faculty at Princeton. Students would imitate his voice and Kenneth learned about it and repeated it while the campus gathered for a photograph with Bernie Green right next to him--Kenneth hadn't met him yet, and so he didn't know who he was. That caused much laughter in the crowd.
