The first one I remember is Pirsig (Robert?) who wrote Zen and the Art of
Motorcycle Repair. There was a big hoo-ha within STC because he was a member
of the Twin Cities Chapter at the time. As I recall, he remained a TW for at
least some time after the book became a success. The movie, BTW, bore no
resemblance whatsoever to the book.
