    Albert was my great-uncle, and my own son is named for Alden. Albert was 26 at the time and lived to be 91, so I heard the story firsthand from him dozens of times. Technically the picture is copyrighted -- it came to me when Uncle Al died. I give you permission to use it on this page. It's one of our family treasures! :) Check out my award-winning book about the Caldwells, "A Rare Titanic Family." https://sites.google.com/si...

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.
