Craig Dickson, who served for thirty-four years on vessels of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, retiring as second mate, will be speaking at the Woods Hole Public Library about his time at sea. In this talk, Craig will feature several voyages aboard the Atlantis II during the 1980’s and 1990’s in the Atlantic, including the famous discovery of the Titanic, which he will be talking about as it relates to surface operations.
His own photographs will illustrate his talk, both of the sea and several beautiful island ports: Bermuda, Iceland, the Azores, and Madeira. On one of the most notable cruises (though not as famous as the Titanic discovery, but more important scientifically) they discovered the deep-sea vents south of the Azores.
The talk will be on Tuesday, March 14 at 3 PM in the Library’s lower level meeting room which is handicapped accessible. The event is free and open to the public.
