News: March 26, 2004 -Village's "see" captain steers through the centuries - The Barnstable Patriot

www.barnstablepatriot.com [cached]

HISTORIAN Author of 10 volumes of local and world history, Jim Gould wrote the first English language history of Sumatra, now standing on shelves in his Cotuit study.Village's "see" captain steers through the centuriesGould brings local history to lightJim Gould has been living with history since the day he was born.This trim six-foot college teacher in retirement is as strongly identified with his beloved Cotuit today as other notables for example, an editor of The Atlantic Monthly, a president of Harvard College and the inventor of Kirkman's soap were devoted, long ago, to the village that Wampanoags called "place of contentment."Born in Boulder, Colo., son of a geologist who developed of a shale oil methodology of extracting oil, James W. Gould owes his middle name to history the memory of the heroic physician and soldier James Warren, who fell in the Battle of Bunker Hill.Nobody in Cotuit, except possibly a 'round the world airline pilot or supertanker captain, has traveled the globe as much as GouldNow in his seventies, he has lived on both coasts of America (you can hardly get closer to the Atlantic than his striking waterfront home on West Bay, designed by daughter-in-law, architect Joan Dineen in 1972 when Jim Gould and his wife, Anne Garrison, were moving to the Cape full-time.They'd met aboard a passenger ship running from Hong Kong to San Francisco and were married in California.Ms. Gould's family has a long history of summers on Cape Cod.Gould studied and taught at universities here, in the Pacific, Germany, France and probably a few more nations overseas before he retired as full professor from Clermont College east of Los Angeles.His love now is local history, understandably because, after so many travels, "Home is the sailor, home from the sea," and glad to be there.Among his current and recent past historical projects are lectures and published papers on the history of Mashpee, Hyannis, Marstons Mills, Oyster Harbors (he has records of whose house burned down and what tycoon lost his mansion when the bottom fell out in the Depression), a history of Portuguese on the Cape ­same for Cape Verdeans, a survey of oldest houses in the Barnstable villages and original churches on the Cape, prominent first families, even a history of golf courses ("I never did anything beyond caddying," he recalls).When it was time for a committee of historians to write a history of Barnstable , Jim Gould, of course, wrote the chapter on Cotuit.Nobody wanted to write about Hyannis.So Jim volunteered.He feels there has been more action, progress, excitement in the town's largest village than anywhere else in Banstable.That explains what kind of a guy Jim Gould really is, and what he thinks about being a local historian.It is a noble calling, he says.How exciting to stand on a piece of old home ground, to learn, know and tell others about the people who stood there years before, their excitements, tears, laughter, their triumphs and failures too.It's an adventure in your own front yard.Consider, he says, that somewhere on Main Street, Hyannis there is a buried brass cannon.It was a vestige years ago of one old war and on a nineteenth century Fourth of July it blew up, maiming at least one young man.To keep that from happening again, the villagers buried the old cannon.Gould would like to find and dig it up, an achievement for any local historian.To continue this rapid litany of high points in Gould's life so far: Before turning to teaching he had non-sedentary adventures in diplomacy.He has a Ph.D. from the Fletcher School of diplomacy and foreign affairs at Tufts University, served in the Foreign Service as its chief officer in Sumatra, which was at the time winning its independence from the Netherlands and later as Foreign Service officer in Chiang's and then Mao's Chinas.Later in life, after teaching and publishing a history of Sumatra and the U.S., he went back to that Pacific country as chief of the Peace Corps there.His career has included work in the international operation of Socony-Mobil.This left him cold.Wall Street was not to be his métier.At Socony Mobil, he recalls, "Your life and your family's belong to the company."For all his experience in diplomacy, intelligence gathering, what most people would consider high adventure, the name of his goal today is peace.A strong supporter of the United Nations, he's been president of the local UN association in most of the places he has livedAlong his way, Jim earned five battle stars and a Purple Heart in both European and Pacific theaters of World War II.He earned them the hard way, over five years in the infantry, and here's the payoff for being a historian he won the assignment to take Eisenhower and Churchill for tours of captured battlegrounds in the Rhineland.You couldn't help liking Ike, he says.
