April 10, 2012 at 7:55 am Leave a comment

100 years ago today, the Titanic left on¬†Southampton its maiden–and only– voyage across the Atlantic Ocean. The ship has some Baltimore connections — Walter Lord, who wrote the well-known account of Titanic, A Night to Remember, was born in Baltimore.¬† Meanwhile, the woman who was the basis for Rose, Kate Winslet’s character in the film Titanic, was a wealthy woman who lived on St. Paul Street in Baltimore.

Tom Hall talks about both of these connections with Baltimore Sun journalist Fred Rasmussen, who’s teaching a course on Titanic at the Roland Park Country School on April 16th.
