Nick,
At my parents house which was built in the early 50's, there were eve vents, but nothing else. We found that there was a problem with some plastics melting on some items (mostly Christmas decorations). When they had the roof replaced several years ago, I talked them into adding a ridge vent and soffit vents during the project. They also added a thermostat controlled fan (which just moves the air when it hits a preset temp).
Since the additions, they haven't had any problems with things melting (which now include some trains that are stored up there).
They live in MD, so the summer temps can get quite warm.

I think the insulation idea is a great one, and the truss vents can be purchased at any home improvement store (we installed them when my wife and I built our room addition).

Good luck
