There has been much written about Gene Coyle’s wonderful life. I just wanted to add a couple of personal remembrances of Gene. It was great the way he would start a pool about political races while holding court in the Sugarbowl. This would lead to great political discussions. The monetary stakes were small but the payback in terms of generating ideas of the current political landscape was huge.
I also remember sitting at the back of the Middlesex Club with Gene and others and discussing current events especially politics. Gene’s brother would join us when he was in town. There would be newspapers strewn all over the grass.
These are among my fond memories of Gene.
