Titanic History

               Titanic History Film Clips


'I Was on the Titanic' (Pageant Magazine, 1953)

The 1953 TITANIC reunion took place in New York City. Numbered among the nine survivors was Edith Russell, who had been nineteen at the time of the ship's sinking. Also in attendance that day was the writer Seymour Ettman, who collaborated with Russell in crafting the attached five page article about her experiences the night TITANIC slipped below the surface of the North Atlantic:

"If the TITANIC sinks, will they transfer the luggage?"

"Miss, if I were you, I'd go back to your room and kiss your lovely things goodbye."

 

The Sinking of an Ocean Queen ('48 Magazine, 1948)

Award winning word-smith Hanson W. Baldwin (1903 - 1991) wrote this tight little essay some 64 years after the TITANIC sinking. He succinctly pieced together the events of that day (April 12, 1912) and clearly indicated that there was plenty of blame to go around for the tremendous loss of life; not simply the Grand Poobahs in the senior positions (Captain Smith and Bruce Ismay) but the small fries as well (such as Second Radio Operator Harold McBride). By the second page, Baldwin commences with an hour by hour break-down of the events on-board TITANIC until she made her final plunge into the deep:

"12:30 a.m. The word is passed: 'Women and children in the boats'. Stewards finish waking passengers below; life-preservers are tied on; some men smile at the precaution.
"'The TITANIC is unsinkable.'"

 

A Greek Tragedy at Sea (Century Magazine, 1912)

In an effort to add some element of nobility to that horrid April night when TITANIC slipped under the surface of the sea, an anonymous opinion writer wrote this short editorial six weeks later:

"Men are at heart what they admire, and this spontaneous sympathy, cutting across all lines of caste or class or race, means that the world has risen to a higher realization of its better self. Having inspired such a feeling, the dead of the TITANIC have not died in vain. This is the chief consolation to be offered to the bereaved who survive them."

"The terrible event reads like an epic of night, or like a Greek tragedy on a colossal scale; more, it is a revelation of the power of God in man."

 

The TITANIC Disaster (The Nation, 1912)

Not long after the Titanic disaster was made known, there were many rumors and half truths that had to be sorted out and recognized as such in order to fully understand the full scope of the catastrophe; the editors of THE NATION printed this article which contributed to that effort:

"...two terrible, damning facts stand out: the first, that the ship was speeding through an ice-field of the presence of which its officers were fully aware; the second, is that every life could readily have been saved had there been boats and rafts enough to keep people afloat in a clear, starry night on an exceptionally smooth Atlantic sea. Both these facts are indisputable."

"As for the lifeboats, these expensive affairs that could cost the large sum of $425.00 apiece - there were but twenty of them in addition to a few rafts..."

 

Weighing in on Bruce Ismay (Current Literature Magazine, 1912)

A couple of admirals weigh in as to the innocence or guilt of Bruce Ismay (1862 1937), Managing Director of the White Star Line. While the PITTSBURGH DISPATCH seemed to think that a debate was simply not necessary:

"...But it cannot be ignored that the man who in the management of the line had sent the great steamer to sea with lifeboats for about one-third of the ship's company, bore a responsibility that might well have been atoned by joining the gallant men who went down with the ship."

 

Four TITANIC Cartoons (Literary Digest, 1912)

Four cartoons pertaining to the loss of TITANIC; the drawings first appeared in four different newspapers from various parts of the the United States shortly after news of the disaster had spread.
