Re: [BKARTS] Question about Hollander's



Hello all,

The Hollander beater, as I understand it,  derives its name from the
fact that it was developed in the Netherlands in the 17th Century.
(Something like the Hollanders in Ann Arbor). Many Dutch names -- and
names in other places as well -- describe a person's  connection to a
community or to the land; Van den Berg (from the hill),  Vanoostendorp
(from the east town), Vanmiddendorp (from the middle town),
Vanwestenbrugge (from the west bridge), schaaphok (sheep-pen) etc.

Jenny,

Of course, Hollander's in Ann Arbour takes its name from Tom and Cindy
Hollander the owners of the store.

At a guess, I should think that the hollander pulp beater got its name

from
the inventor, (another) Mr. Hollander  :-)  But I am sure that there
are
some paper people on this list who could confirm or deny this fact!

best wishes,

David

Yes, there is a paper and book arts store in Michigan called
Hollanders-- they got the name, I suppose, from the machine. I've
never been there in person, which I've told is fun, but they do quite
the mail order business
