Born August 20, 1925 into a sea-faring family, Jack Brock was preceded by four generations of Brocks holding their captain's papers for American vessels.
He served honorably in the U. S. Navy during World War II. After that, he trained in the fine Arts and pursued a career as a painter. At one time, he had his own school of Art in Marietta, Georgia. Upon moving to Hawaii in the 1960s and becoming a pioneer SCUBA diver, he became the collector for the Waikiki Aquarium, holding that position for several years. Still painting today, his landscapes, nudes, and still lifes can be found in art collections across America. Since his father and grandfather are both remembered as great raconteurs, his story telling abilities may be inherited. In any event, this writing was a labor of love in both the researching of his familys history and the filling in of some gaps. Bare annals fail to show motivation for historical events but when the characters are fleshed out, as they are here, they begin to make sense. Jack Brock has written quite a tale while illuminating scenes of American history! Jack Brock
