Sea Captains of Cape Cod with Dr. Michael Pregot

Friday, May 10, at 11:00 am

Whether you call Cape Cod a man-made island or describe it as a geographic peninsula connected to the mainland by bridges, there is one non-debatable fact. Cape Cod is surrounded by water on all four sides, jutting out prominently into the Atlantic Ocean. This characteristic accounts in large measure for its history, its economic development, its aesthetic beauty, and its maritime legacy.

This narrative explores the connection that each Cape Cod town has to the sea as demonstrated through its seafaring residents. It provides a glimpse into heroic maritime adventures, entrepreneurial brilliance, and an appreciation of the resolve needed by captains to thrive in a hostile seaside environment.

Dr. Pregot's book, Sea Captains of Cape Cod, is available for purchase in the Museum Shop.

Dr. Michael Pregot has spent over half a century in the field of education. He has served as a Modern Language teacher, a high school principal, a district-wide school superintendent, a professor of education, and a University Director of an Educational Leadership Department. He has published several articles and a textbook on the dispositions needed to be an efficient school official. He has lived on the Cape for several years with his wife, Judith.  He is still an online professor and author. The maritime history of the Cape has caught his attention for the past few years.  He is currently studying the complexity of slave trading and abolitionism in Cape Cod.
