Overview

April 15, 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, arguably the 20th century’s most famous peacetime sea disaster. Titanic at 100 commemorates the anniversary by bringing together news stories, opinions, tributes, survivor accounts, and more, giving a glimpse into the aftermath of the loss of the “unsinkable” ship.

Included are original articles from The New York Times, widely regarded as the first newspaper to correctly report the severity of the disaster, spanning the period from Titanic’s launch to the days immediately following the catastrophe; comments and criticism about Titanic from noted literary figures of the day, including George Bernard Shaw, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and H. G. Wells; poetic tributes released in the weeks following the sinking; and two full accounts of that harrowing night penned by survivors Lawrence Beesley and Col. Archibald Gracie. Also included are three fictional works many feel predicted the Titanic’s untimely end: two stories written by Titanic passenger W. T. Stead, who went down with the ship, and Morgan Robertson’s complete Futility, Or The Wreck of the Titan, published in 1898.
