Arthur Leapard MARTIN had his name legally changed to Arthur Stephen MARTIN.
He was an electrical engineer by training having gone to the University of Florida for 3-1/2 years without graduating. He would have been in the class of 1939.

He served in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers during World War II in New Guinea. After the war he was employed by Tropical Oil Company in Colombia, South America; City of West Palm Beach as assistant city engineer; Palm Beach Air Force Base as base civil engineer; Banana River Naval Air Station (now Patrick Air Force Base); Gee & Jenson Consulting Engineers; Boeing Company at Cape Canaveral and New Orleans where he worked on the Minuteman missile and Saturn V projects; and Bechtel Corp where he worked as a Quality Engineer on nuclear power plant projects.

He had an avid interest in boating (predominately sail boats and houseboats). This probably stemmed from his youth when he lived on a houseboat in Miami and he helped his grandfather deliver the U.S. Mail by boat in South Florida from West Palm Beach to Lake Okeechobee.
