For over 90 years, Captain James Arruda Henry of Mystic,Connecticut, remained illiterate, ashamed to order from menus and other things many of us take for granted. Captain Henry proved that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks when, with the help of volunteer English tutors and pure perseverance, he finally learned how to read and write at the ripe age of 92-years young.
The Captain didn’t stop there. After breaking the literacy barrier, his stories from the many years at sea started pouring onto the page. The only logical next step was to turn his incredible life stories into a book. At age 98, James Henry published his autobiography, ”In a Fisherman’s Language,” a collection of short stories from his time as a fisherman.
“I may not be a professor, but I’m learning. I’m still learning. Who knows? If I live long enough, maybe I will be a professor.” – Captain James Henry
