Carl Goerch

Carl Goerch, author of OcracokeThe late Carl Goerch was known as "Mr. North Carolina." He excelled in several fields: as the long-term reading clerk for the state house of representatives, a popular broadcaster, newspaper columnist, book author, and a widely sought speaker "full of good humor." Goerch also founded the popular magazine The State, still published today as Our State. He had visited all fifty states and fifty-two foreign countries, but if you asked him his favorite spot on earth, he no doubt would have said Ocracoke.
