Who was Starbuck?

Starbuck was the young chief mate of Pequod. This took place in the book Moby Dick. Being a Quaker from Nantucket he thought alot and was very intellectual. This was the name the three partners who started Starbucks agreed upon.

The team that started Starbucks consisted of an English teacher, history teacher, and a writer. So, it was only natural that they settled on a name in a book.
