LECTURE: John P. Holland & the Holland Torpedo Co.


Speaker: Buck Buchanan, Submarine History Instructor, US Navy

Please join us in the Fireplace Room of Case's Place at the Galley Ho for a rare, in-depth look into the fascinating life of Irish immigrant John P. Holland, inventor of the modern submarine. You might already know that, from 1899-1905, Holland submarine trials were conducted right here at the New Suffolk Waterfront, site of the first submarine base in the United States. But, John Holland’s life was not an easy one, nor was it paved with fame, glory or wealth. Come hear his story.
