Thomas Andrews, the man who designed Titanic and worked for Harland and Wolff. He was born February 7th 1873 and was 39 at the time of the sinking. He was a man of great dignity and honor, who built a strong ship...a ship that lasted an hour more than he predicted her to live. He died that night, on the ship he created.
ONE OF THE SEVEN PEOPLE WHO MISSED THE TITANIC--Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, the 34-year-old multimillionaire sportsman, heir to the Vanderbilt shipping and railroad empire, cancelled his passage so late, many early newspaper accounts listed him as on board. Vanderbilt lived on to become one of the most celebrated casualties of the Lusitania sinking, three years later.
