The Titanic Historical Society’s (THS) collection, one of its greatest strengths, is its collected works of rare Titanic survivor artifacts, one of the finest anywhere. Many were donated by the survivors themselves to THS’s founder and president, Edward S. Kamuda in the 1960s through the 80s, the organization’s early years.
The collection covers a broad scope of Titanic’s rich history, from original blueprints of her tank top donated by her builders, Harland & Wolff, to the 21st century where the ship has become a popular icon from movies and TV. From merchandise to movies, you will see souvenirs and sheet music produced right after the sinking to colorful film posters illustrating the drama from the 1950s to the present.
Titanic’s brave officers, crew and all the passenger classes are represented; stories of courage, adventure and even humor about other times and other places and people like our grandparents.
Titanic’s collision with an iceberg is a chronicle of “What Ifs” and you will see a very important artifact in Titanic history––the Wireless Message received by Titanic stating the location of the fatal iceberg that never made it to the bridge!
One of the most famous and the wealthiest were the John Jacob Astors. Mrs. Astor’s lifejacket is one of THS’s treasured mementos.
