    "A wealthy, single socialite, Edith Corse Evans was 36 years old when she boarded the Titanic. On board she befriended a 59 year old wife and mother named Caroline Brown. The two women were among the throng trying to reach a lifeboat as the Titanic sank. When only one space remained, Edith pushed Caroline forward saying “You go first, you have children waiting at home.” Edith was one of four first class women to perish in the sinking of the Titanic. Her body has never been recovered."

    Richard Norris Williams III (Tennis Star) also gained fame as being a survivor of the RMS Titanic disaster in April 1912. He and his father, Charles (who he saw crushed by a falling funnel), were traveling first class on the liner. Shortly after the collision, Williams freed a trapped passenger from a cabin by breaking down a door. He was reprimanded by a steward, who threatened to fine him for destroying White Star Line property, an event that inspired a scene in Cameron's 1997 film Titanic.
