John Strugnell, a former editor-in-chief of the Dead Sea Scrolls project and Professor of Christian Origins Emeritus at Harvard Divinity School, died on November 30, 2007, at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His death came after a week of hospitalization for an infection.

Strugnell came to HDS as a visiting associate professor in 1965, after serving for five years at Duke University as an assistant professor of Old Testament. He ended up staying at HDS, and in 1968 was named Professor of Christian Origins, the title he held until his retirement in 1996.
