who is Dr. Warren Kruger

In the Steely Dan song, "West of Hollywood" (from the 'Two Against Nature" CD), they mention "Dr. Warren Kruger"
Who is this?

according to
Dr. Warren Kruger is a deranged 'social scientist' a la Timothy Leary who has an office on the Upper East Side

I think this is a standard question for discussion amongst Steely Dan fans e.g. here is a internet forum filled of "interesting" discussion, much about this question
