(Falmouth, Massachusetts): Highfield Hall & Gardens is pleased to announce Bruce Strickrott, Manager of Alvin at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) for the Supper Club Series next installment.
Bruce Strickrott is a deep-sea explorer and the Chief Pilot of the deep submergence vehicle Alvin, at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Woods Hole, MA. Mr. Strickrott joined the Alvin operations team in 1996 and worked his way up from engineering technician to Alvin Chief Pilot, eventually leading the dive operations as the Expedition Leader. Bruce has logged over 380 dives in Alvin spending over 2400 hours underwater throughout the world’s oceans.
The first voyage to take the newly outfitted Alvin to the deeper depth will be in September 2021 in the Puerto Rico trench with Bruce leading the expedition. A documentary film of Strickrott’s dive in 2021 is currently being planned.
Mr. Strickrott is a United States Navy veteran who served on two guided missile cruisers, the USS Horne (CG-30), and the USS FOX (CG-33), which included deployments to the Middle East as part of Operation Earnest Will and Operation Desert Storm. After an honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy, Bruce graduated cum laude from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida with a degree in ocean engineering.

About Highfield Hall & Gardens
The house is a rare surviving example of transitional Stick Style architecture, containing beautiful gardens located in the heart of Falmouth, Massachusetts. It is a unique combination of a historic house, expansive gardens and trails, and a vibrant cultural center. Built in 1878 as the summer home for Boston’s Beebe family, the house sits on 5.5 pristine acres surrounded by nearly 400 acres of conservation land and public walking trails. Highfield Hall & Gardens is not your typical historic estate. It is an example of a historic building saved by grassroots community organizing. An effort of tenacity and vision that continues as new research on the structure and its story of the people who lived here add to the building’s significance. It offers world-class music, international art exhibitions, culinary classes, family programs, and year- round special events.
