Titanic Second-Class Family Caldwell: Albert Francis, 26, Sylvia Mae, 26, and son Alden Gates, 10-months-old: While returning to their home at Roseville, IL from a mission to teach in Siam, the Caldwells travelled through Europe to England where they booked on Titanic. Sylvia got into Lifeboat 13, Alden was tossed to Steward Frederick Ray in the stern, and Albert stepped onto the bow. Alden cried until someone realized his feet were exposed. This was remembered by survivor Lawrence Beesley.
“The most difficult struggle of all is the one within ourselves. Let us not get accustomed and adjusted to these conditions. The one who adjusts ceases to discriminate between good and evil. He becomes a slave in body and soul. Whatever may happen to you, remember always: Don’t adjust! Revolt against the reality!” -Mordechai Anielewicz
