Attached is an eye-witness account recalling the last minutes of Captain Edward Smith, commander of TITANIC:

"Those who had already made the (collapsible) boat saw Captain Smith swimming toward them with a child held high out of water. With a lifebelt to support him, the Captain was swimming easily and strongly. He reached the boat, from which hands were stretched out to receive him, and passed the child on board...Captain Smith shoved himself away from the boat..."I will go down with the ship," he cried. He sank immediately, and although those on the collapsible boat watched for him to come up that they might drag him aboard, he never appeared."
