The Forgotten Faces of the Titanic

May 4, 2019

Presented by Wisteria Perry, Interpretation and Community Outreach Manager

Lecture begins at 10:30 AM & 2:30 PM

Maritime Connections lectures are free with Museum admission, but seating is limited.

This is a lecture series presented by The Mariners’ Museum and Park staff. Go behind the scenes of the Museum and explore our collection while learning about the work the staff does.

When the tragic tale of the Titanic is told, we often focus on the famous names: Astor, Guggenheim, Straus. But among the thousands who sailed on that fateful voyage, there are many stories that are overlooked. Wisteria Perry’s talk examines stories of passengers from all over the world, including China, Haiti, and Egypt, and also a few survivors who ended up here in Hampton Roads.
