Byron Walden is a math and computer science professor at Santa Clara University. Harrison is his 8-year-old son, who, with occasional assistance, has been doing crosswords for more than a year. The jokes in this puzzle’s theme are a collaboration between the fill — although the across top right and lower left corners are completely Harrison’s. The two wrote the clues together. (Happy Father’s Day!) — W.S.
