PORTLAND, Maine —

Former classmates of a man who kept hidden in the woods of Maine for 27 years and who's known as the North Pond Hermit remember him as quiet, smart and nerdy.

Christopher Knight's former classmates at Lawrence High School in Fairfield tell Waterville's Morning Sentinel newspaper (http://bit.ly/YjcIXv) the 1984 graduate kept pretty much to himself and didn't stand out.

Albion resident Sue Greeley remembers Knight as being thin and having thick hair and big glasses.

Curt Reid says he was shocked to hear Knight had been accused of committing more than 1,000 burglaries to support his life in the woods.

Knight is charged with stealing food from a camp along North Pond in Rome, a town of about 1,000 residents. He's jailed in Augusta and has refused requests for interviews.
