This lucid essay about the TITANIC disaster was penned by the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Hanson W. Baldwin (1903 - 1991) sixty-four years after that sad day (April 12, 1912). Baldwin pieced together the events of her doomed journey and clearly indicates 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.'"
