Wisconsin, April 1972

What ever happened to Gene Pokorny? He is described in Fear and Lothing on the Campaign Trail '72 as a brilliant, young campaign organizer. He coordinated the McGovern victory in the Wisconsin primaries with a bunch of kids from all over the country living in a warehouse in Milwaukee.

I googled him this week and found that the only Gene Pokorny on the Internet is a tuba player for the Chicago Symphony.

Campaign organizer turned tuba virtuoso?
