The sinking of the Titanic on April 12, 1912 is known to the world as the one of the greatest maritime tragedies of all time. The loss of over 1.500 people who perished in the icy waters of the North Atlantic was profound, resulting in regulations mandating sufficient lifeboats for everyone on board, establishment of the International Ice Patrol and manning a ship‘s wireless station around the clock. “Safety first” became a way of life. Until the discovery of the wreck on September 1, 1985, The Titanic Historical Society was primarily responsible for the keeping the Titanic story alive along with a few books, an occasional magazine article, television and a few notable motion pictures. When Dr. Robert Ballard and his team of French and American scientists located the RMS Titanic gravesite, interest in the vessel and her history soared.
