Strangers to Us All
Lawyers and Poetry

Thomas Victor Siporin


Siporin's Metaphysical Journals (perhaps misnamed) indicate that he attended Harvard and obtained his law degree from UCLA (most likely in 1968). We have, from other sources, learned that he spent the 1970s working for legal services. He was also an author of plays and a painter; his work appeared in numerous exhibits.

Siporin worked for the American Indian Movement at Wounded Knee. [source: Obituary, Los Angeles Times, Nov. 20, 2001)]
