Bio: Dave Koltun has spent most of his life in Springfield and central Illinois. He has worked in academia as a political-science professor, in politics as a campaign-management consultant and in state government as a manager of data and evaluation. Since taking early retirement
in 2003, he has focused on one of his true
passions, historical trivia. A former trivia
champion at the University of Illinois,
Koltun believes that trivia should have a twist
to it rather than being limited to a
regurgitation of facts.
