Controversial Titanic survivor dies in 1940...



Item # 669392

March 21, 1940

THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 21, 1940

* William Ernest Carter death (1st report)
* Controversial male RMS Titanic survivor


The top of page 25 has a one column heading: "WILLIAM E. CARTER, TITANIC  SURVIVOR" with subheads. (see) Mr. Carter got caught up in the finger pointing associated with being a male Titanic survivor and was forced to defend not only himself but J. Bruce Ismay as well. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 52 pages, rag edition in very nice condition.
