Overview

Rubaboo: The Story of Arthur Woodward-Adventurer, Historian, Archaeologist-Who Was Driven by His Need to Know by Ken Woodward

Readers will find themselves engaged in an exciting search through a presidential library, in addition to university, state, national and local archives, as the author's historical research unfolds to reveal the true story about his Uncle Art. From a secret mission to the South Pacific with Admiral Byrd to being Head Curator for the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History, and from historical findings of the Battle at San Pasqual to exploration of ancient native inhabitants on the Channel Islands-Art lived a most interesting life.
What began as a short essay of memories to include in the author's family files at the Guy B. Woodward Museum in Ramona, Calif., turned into a five-year research project highlighting a few of the many accomplishments of archaeologist, ethnologist, anthropologist, historian, explorer and more-Arthur Woodward.

About the Author

Ken Woodward was born and raised in Oceanside, California. He served in the U.S. Army in Korea in 1953, and later completed his college education at San Diego State College, where he earned BA and MA degrees. He then became a high school teacher and taught for 12 years at Oceanside High School.
In 1969, he had an opportunity to establish a high school completion program for non-graduates serving in the military. For the next 31 years, he worked closely with the various military branches to establish and expand these programs, which included not only high school, but lower division college-level programs, as well.
His last 15 years of work in the field of military education were spent with Central Texas College of Killeen, Texas, where he was Associate Dean and Director of Pacific Programs-encompassing the West Coast, Hawaii, Guam, Japan and the Philippines.
He is currently the Director of the Guy B. Woodward Museum, named after his father, in Ramona, California.
