In Memoriam: RMS Titanic

Original Artwork by Nicholas Disabato


The Titanic Historical Society was, for many years, the only organization devoted to preserving the memory of the Great Ships. They have now been joined by many other organizations around the world with the same mission. Most publish regular correspondence containing a wealth of information not available elsewhere. Support their ongoing work with your membership and see what is being done to preserve the memory of the Titanic and other great ships!

The graphic on this page was designed by my son, Nicholas, for the BBS I was running. The White Star Line BBS was in operation for just over three years. I shut it down after I realized it would be far easier to reach more people on the World Wide Web.
