- Author BiographyDr. W.E. (Wim) Renkema (1942) studied history and social geography at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. He worked as a history teacher (including six years in Curacao), vice principal and deputy rector. In 1981 he obtained his doctorate with a thesis on the Curacao plantation business in the nineteenth century. Since then he has published several articles on the history of Curacao and a book on Governor R.F. of Raders, A Life in the West. Van Raders and his activities in Curacao (Brill, 2009). In examining the cartography of the six Dutch islands in the Caribbean Sea, his interest in old maps and the history of the area came together.
