Will Treece

Will Treece grew up in Tokyo, lives in Detroit, and is currently a History major at Swarthmore College. Highlights of his life include playing in the Japanese National Scrabble Championship, his North Korea-themed 18th birthday party, and lip-syncing a rap about Poe's "The Ravem" in front of his entire high school. He'll be providing mental_floss with tasty historical tidbits this summer, and he really likes maps.
