One Night on the Caribbean Queen
An insane genius with an encyclopedic knowledge of newspapers
With a mind that is obviously demented, Henry Rentford (known affectionately as “Uncle Henry” by his neice,Glenda Summers), he has become extremely obsessed with reading and memorizing newspapers from across the United States and even, to a lesser extent, around the world. He has a drinking problem and his niece expressly forbids him from anyone bringing him drinks. Strangely, he is also extremely bibiophobic (an irrational fear of books) and will not tolerate them in his presence.
