      One of the most amazing stories of any Titanic survivors, Violet Constance Jessop was an ocean liner stewardess and a nurse who survived the sinking of both the RMS Titanic and HMHS Britannic in 1912 and 1916... she also served on their sister ship RMS Olympic. One of only 2 people to have survived the sinking of 2 of the Olympic class ships & one of very few to have served on all 3!

    Matilde Moisant, 1911. Moisant was the second woman in the United States to receive a pilot's license. She flew in aviation meets throughout the US and Mexico until the early spring of 1912, often flying at higher altitudes than most male pilots. She is pictured here, wearing a (pre-WWII) swastika brooch as a good luck charm. (One day I will have a board dedicated to the swastika as a positive symbol. Thanks for ruining it, Hitler.)

    Isador and Ida Straus. Isador owned Macy's. When the Titanic began to sink, Ida refused to get on a lifeboat without her husband. They were inseperable in life, writing to each other every day they were apart. He was offered a place with her, but HE refused, saying younger men should go in his place. He put his wife's maid on instead. They were last seen sitting together quietly on the deck of the Titanic. I hope to face my end with as much grace.
