Two 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:
"It is hardly more than fair to say that the evidence given at the Senate Titanic hearing went far to absolve Mr. Bruce Ismay of the imputation of having saved himself to the exclusion of women and children or other passengers...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."
