Why pineapple you might ask?

Author Jack Larsen

Creative Company’s president grew up in Hawaii while her father, Jack Larsen, spent many years working for Dole, on pineapple plantations and in management.

When he retired, he spent fifteen years researching, interviewing key figures, collecting historic documents and photos, and writing an in-depth overview of the history of the pineapple business in Hawaii. He included perspectives from both labor and management, and an historic overview of how pineapple canning began.

When the research and writing portion was done, he started looking for someone to put the book together. His daughter jumped in.

Hawaiian Pineapple book

Jennifer and Creative Company then spent another three years designing, building, editing and producing this remarkable book. Unlike any other book on the pineapple business, the nearly 700 pages are filled with historic interviews; archive photos from Dole’s archives, the Bishop Museum and personal sources; sample ads from the early 1900s through the 1990s; maps and documents and more that illustrate the rise and fall of the pineapple industry and a way of life in Hawaii. The result? Hawaiian Pineapple Entrepreneurs.

And it’s available online, check out the website.
