Strohecker was subsequently hired as an assistant professor in 1936 and then moved to Kenyon College from 1937 to 1944 and Wayne University from 1944 to 1945. In 1946, he took at position as professor at the University of Miami, a position he held until his retirement in 1972. He became a Research Associate with the Florida State Collection of Arthropods on October 25, 1977 and remained an associate until his death.

During his distinguished career, Strohecker was active in a number of professional societies including the American Society of Zoologists, Sigma Xi, and the Coleopterists Society. He passed away on November 14, 1988 in Coral Gables, FL.

Special thanks to Ms. Anne Strohecker Davis of Virginia Beach, Frederick's niece, and Drs. M.C. Thomas and P.E. Skelley of the Florida State Collection of Arthropods for providing biographical information about the life of this extraordinary taxonomist.
