A blog dedicated to RMS Titanic, her passengers & crew, and the stories she still tells today. We will occasionally write our own articles & research, & we welcome Asks & Submissions as well! Enjoy our biography project where we are writing detailed profiles of each passenger and crew member!
This blog was created by Tanya, a History & Maritime Studies major, minor in Archaeology and pursuing a wreck-diving certification with her degree. She is a member of the Titanic Historical Society and dreams of a career in preserving underwater artifacts, specifically from Titanic, and opening her own museum & historical society in New York.
Jeni is co-owner of this blog. She is an Anthropology and History major, who does tours in the New York metro area and helps with research. She also focuses on fashions throughout history and social history.
Although this blog mainly focuses on Titanic, other things ship-related in history will be posted.
I’m currently doing research for an article I’ve been planning on writing for a while that I might develop into my thesis.
Part of that research requires me to do a little digging for opinions outside of my own on the topic. So I’d very much appreciate your input! Don’t worry, you can submit anon if you want, I won’t be using any direct quotes(unless you want me to & I have your permission). I’d just like to hear from you guys so I can get a better idea of where people stand on this topic today. If you could pass this around also I’d greatly appreciate it.
So here we go. You don’t have to answer all of these. And feel free to add anything else you’d like to say on the topic, such as information, facts, etc.
The topic: J Bruce Ismay
1. How do you feel about his actions the night of the sinking?
2. What is your impression of his character in general?
3. Would you apply the same opinion towards someone who did what he did in today’s society?
4. What do you think you would have done in his position?
5. Was society too harsh on him?
6. Do you think films portray Ismay accurately?
7. Have you had any further study on Ismay(such as inquiry readings, biographies, witness accounts, etc)?
