Ogden shows Titanic lifeboats approaching the rescue ship, Carpathia. The photo was part of a 2003 exhibition bequeathed to the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England, by Walter Lord.

During the sinking, she was credited with encouraging many people to get into the lifeboats before she herself was convinced to get into Lifeboat #6. She and the sailor in charge of that boat had a quarrel as she wanted to row back and pick up survivors, while he was terrified that the suction from the sinking ship would take their lifeboat under.

Now hopefully I can find one from the Titanic = my favorite and greatest section of all time! Cross-section of the HMS Olympic from the August 14, 1909 issue of "The Illustrated London".

Leadership gains/failures by all ships "relevant" to that fateful night:

When a ship it sinks it leaves a path of debris (objects from within the ship or objects breaking off). Depending how deep the vessel sinks this debris can be scattered over a large distance. On a shorter descent, the debris falls more or less vertically. However, as the Titanic sank 21/2 miles a huge debris field was expected.

This photo shows Captain Smith on the bridge with a young boy. I highly doubt that this is on board Titanic. But on another ship the Captain was Master of. This shows what he would have looked like on Titanic.
