Yup, in DB, Gary is Japhy Ryder, I'm Rhoda Ryder. The person I am marrying in that book is the same one whose art work is selling on Ebay (he's a superrealistic cowboy artist in Wyoming named James Bama.) Kerouac had him being a salesman or businessman, as I recall. I have a picture of Gary standing on a snowbank wearing shorts and holding out food to an elk, on Sourdough Mt.
