Arnold E. van Beverhoudt, Jr.
In the mid-1980s, I started researching the history of vessels named “Enterprise” and eventually put that information together in the book These Are the Voyages: A History of the Ships, Aircraft, and Spacecraft Named Enterprise. Since then, I’ve chronicled my life story and that of my wife Helena in Island Boy Meets Island Girl: Our Life on the Rock in order to preserve our family histories. I also compiled a series of Island Boy Photobooks to preserve a treasure trove of family and scenic photographs taken by me or family members. Lastly, The Ventures Essential Albums Discography documents the musical history of "The Ventures," who are recognized as the most popular instrumental band in the world and were 2008 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. All of my books are self-published through and available from Lulu.com.
