Brockton And Stoughton Men Aboard Titanic

Brockton Daily Enterprise

Among the passengers of the Titanic are Frank D. Millet, the distinguished artist, once of East Bridgewater, and a brother of Dr. Charles S. Millett of Brockton; George Q. Clifford, of the Belcher Last Co. of Stoughton and widely known among the shoe trade; and John E. Maguire, of Brockton - past exalted ruler of the Brockton Lodge of Elks, who had been abroad for the Dunber Pattern Co.

Mr. Clifford and Mr. Maguire, with Walter L. Porter of S. Porter & Co. women's lastmakers of Worcester, left for Europe together on the Megantic from Boston Feb. 20. Mr. Clifford is president of the Blecher Last Co. of Stoughton. Mr. Maguire was formerly Brockton collector for Collier's Weekly and went on the road for the Dunbar Pattern Co. of this city about a year ago. He went to Europe in the interests of the Dunbar Pattern Service and toured England, Scotland, France, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Neither the Dunber Pattern Co. nor the Belcher Last Co. had heard anything this forenoon from Mr. Maguire or Mr. Clifford other than the newspaper reports. A week ago the Dunber Pattern Co. received word that Mr. Maguire had taken passage on the Titanic and his name appears on the passenger list. Mr. Maguire was exalted ruler of Brockton Lodge B.P.O. Elks, two years ago.

While Mr. Clifford was on the voyage across his mother died in this city, and he found a cablegram telling of her passing away when he landed in England.
