A professor moving to another town reveals a startling secret explaining his departure to his colleagues.

ABSTRACT
John Oldman, a professor at an American university, is in the process of gathering his belongings and planning to move to another community when his coworkers unexpectedly arrive to throw a farewell party. Asked repeatedly to give a reason for his departure, John eventually explains that he is a Cro-Magnon somehow alive after fourteen thousand years on Earth, moving from town to town every decade to conceal his agelessness from neighbors and colleagues. Disbelief mounts as John begins to relate details of his brushes with historical figures and the development of modern civilization, only to turn the corner in a startling way when John reveals a pseudonym he'd used sixty years earlier.
