The sinking of RMS Titanic on the morning of April 15, 1912 continues to fascinate people around the world. Join Titanic Historical Society member Walter Powell as he recalls the details of that tragic sinking and the Bay State's many ties to the ship--from Harvard, East Bridgewater, Indian Orchard, Worcester--and more.
Presenter: Dr. Walter Powell became the first Executive Director of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants in Plymouth in July 2013 after a 35 year professional career in Gettysburg, PA. He has lectured widely on the famous ship, and attended the 75th and 100th anniversary programs sponsored by Titanic Historical Society.
