==Early Life and Education==
 +
Westerveld was born, in 1947, in [[Monnickendam]], [[Netherlands]]. In 1963, he defeated [[Ton Sijbrands]], an [[international draughts]] player and became [[Dutch Youth Champion]]<ref name="Nederlands Kampioenschap dammen Jeugd">{{cite news||title=Nederlands Kampioenschap dammen Jeugd|url=https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nederlands_kampioenschap_dammen_jeugd |accessdate=2016-11-19}}</ref> and was qualified for ''Senior National Championship'' in the [[Netherlands]]. In 1965 he was ranked no.3 in [[Noord Holland]] for the ''Provincial Senior Championship''.
  
+
Westerveld received his diploma in [[agriculture]] and [[business administration]] (1964-1984) through [[distance education]] from the high schools and universities in the Netherlands and USA. He also received a diploma in [[International Marketing]] from the [[University of Murcia]]. He received his [[doctorate degree]] in 1996 from [[Columbia Southern University]].<ref name="Columbia Southern University">{{cite news||title=Columbia Southern University|url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbia_Southern_University|accessdate=2016-11-19}}</ref>

==Professional Career==
 +
In 1978 Westerveld was cofounder, with a current and future rector and three professors of the University of Murcia, of the company Zoster S.A. (Zeneta, Murcia) destined for manufacturing of natural extracts. There he was in charge of sales abroad and the innovation of natural products destined for the pharmaceutical and alimentary industries. His role in the company was that of promoter of many natural extracts, among them the sweetener Neohesperidin Dihdrochalcone made from oranges. After the company was bought by a multinational he created his own firm in 1989 with the mission to research and promote natural extracts and products in other industries. Among them was the Rosemary Extract in the company Fufural Español S.A. This company, later called Nutrafur, produced high qualities and quantities, which again resulted in an acquisition of the company, this time by an Israeli multinational, in 2015, three years after retirement of Westerveld.

==Historical Research==
 +
From 1986 to 1992, Westerveld wrote many articles on the origin of the game of draughts for the Dutch magazine ''Het Nieuwe Damspel''. In 1990 he published ''Revista Internacional de Damas'' which was recognized by the [[World Draughts Federations]] as an official representation of Spanish draughts. In 1992 he published his first book on the game of checkers in Spain followed by five more. In 1994, Westerveld published his works on the influence of the [[Queen Isabella I of Castile]] on the game of draughts and chess, explaining the fact that the modern chess game and draughts game was a Spanish invention.<ref name="The Queen Piece of Modern Chess Was Inspired by Queen Isabella">{{cite news||title=The Queen Piece of Modern Chess Was Inspired by Queen Isabella|url=http://historynewsnetwork.org /blog/3910|accessdate=2016-11-19}}</ref> <ref name="La reina Isabel y la dama del ajedrez">{{cite news||title=La reina Isabel y la dama del ajedrez|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/spanish/misc/newsid_3529000/3529947.stm|accessdate=2016-11-19}}</ref> <ref name="Queen Isabella's checkmate">{{cite news||title=Queen Isabella's checkmate|url=http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2& objectid=3552520|accessdate=2016-11-19}}</ref> In 1998, he was appointed as a history member of the [[Federación Española de Ajedrez]], the governing body of chess in [[Spain]].

Govert Westerveld (born May 23, 1947) is a Dutch writer, hispanist,[1] independent researcher, chess[2], alquerque-12[3] and draughts historian [4] based in Murcia, Spain. He is also an official chronicler of Blanca, Murcia and a corresponding member of Real Academia Alfonso X el Sabio. He has published over 80 books on history of chess, draughts, alquerque-12, La Celestina,[5] and Spanish history.[6]


Early Life and Education

Westerveld was born, in 1947, in Monnickendam, Netherlands. In 1963, he defeated Ton Sijbrands, an international draughts player and became Dutch Youth Champion[7] and was qualified for Senior National Championship in the Netherlands. In 1965 he was ranked no.3 in Noord Holland for the Provincial Senior Championship.

Westerveld received his diploma in agriculture and business administration (1964-1984) through distance education from the high schools and universities in the Netherlands and USA. He also received a diploma in International Marketing from the University of Murcia. He received his doctorate degree in 1996 from Columbia Southern University.[8]


Professional Career

In 1978 Westerveld was cofounder, with a current and future rector and three professors of the University of Murcia, of the company Zoster S.A. (Zeneta, Murcia) destined for manufacturing of natural extracts. There he was in charge of sales abroad and the innovation of natural products destined for the pharmaceutical and alimentary industries. His role in the company was that of promoter of many natural extracts, among them the sweetener Neohesperidin Dihdrochalcone made from oranges. After the company was bought by a multinational he created his own firm in 1989 with the mission to research and promote natural extracts and products in other industries. Among them was the Rosemary Extract in the company Fufural Español S.A. This company, later called Nutrafur, produced high qualities and quantities, which again resulted in an acquisition of the company, this time by an Israeli multinational, in 2015, three years after retirement of Westerveld.


Historical Research

From 1986 to 1992, Westerveld wrote many articles on the origin of the game of draughts for the Dutch magazine Het Nieuwe Damspel. In 1990 he published Revista Internacional de Damas which was recognized by the World Draughts Federations as an official representation of Spanish draughts. In 1992 he published his first book on the game of checkers in Spain followed by five more. In 1994, Westerveld published his works on the influence of the Queen Isabella I of Castile on the game of draughts and chess, explaining the fact that the modern chess game and draughts game was a Spanish invention.[9] [10] [11] In 1998, he was appointed as a history member of the Federación Española de Ajedrez, the governing body of chess in Spain. Since 2005 Westerveld is one of the two official historians of the Federation Mondiale de Jeu de  Dames.[12]

In January 2002, he was appointed unanimously as an official chronicler[13] of Blanca, Murcia, along with Angel Rios Martinez, by the plenary of the municipality of Blanca. Currently their research focus on new publications on the history of Blanca. Later that year, in December 2002, Westerveld was elected as a corresponding member of the Real Academia Alfonso X el Sabio,[14] taking into account the merits of knowledge and relation to the culture of the Region of Murcia.

In 2004, the Generalitat Valenciana recognized and published Westerveld's work La reina Isabel la Católica: su reflejo en la dama poderosa de valencia, cuna del ajedrez moderno y origen del juego de damas. The book explains the hypothesis of Isabella I of Castile and the documentary evidence found in Scachs d'amor, with revelations of significance national and global impacts.[13][14][15] [16]
