The Professor is a fictional character from the Callahan series by Spider Robinson. He was a world class confidence man who was never caught and only even heard of through reputation. See Callahan's Con for confirmation. Also The Professor is a nickname for the Seventh Doctor as given by his companion Ace in the TV series Doctor Who, of which I am a big fan. Though mostly of the 2005 forward seasons.
