In BibDesk help, on the page entitled 2. BibTeX Intro, in the  
Formatting Names section it says

BibTeX also handles more complicated names. Prefixes to given names  
such as 'van' or 'van den' and suffixes such as 'Jr.' or 'III' are OK:

"van den Huevel, Johan A, Jr."


However when I enter "van den Huevel, Johan A, Jr." in the author  
field and preview the reference I get:

[1] J. van den Huevel, Johan A. Title of Book. Name of Publisher, 1975.

On page 767 of the LaTeX Companion 2nd Edition the following format  
is used:

"van den Huevel, Jr., Johan A"

and indeed that previews in BibDesk as:

[1] J. A. van den Huevel, Jr. Title of Book. Name of Publisher, 1975.

Should the BibDesk Help page be changed, or am I (once again) missing  
something obvious?
