“Is my brother-in-law alive? His name is C. Joughin, and he was a baker on the Titanic.” This question was asked of The Daily News to-day by G. Woodward, 2520 Washington boulevard. Names of members of the crew of the Titanic, who lost their lives have not been made public, he was informed.
“My brother-in-law has been in the White Star service for fifteen years,” said Mr. Woodward. “About two weeks ago I received a letter from him saying he had been sent from the Olympic to the Titanic. His home is in Southampton, England, and he has a wife and two children there.”
Some reports of the disaster say bakers, chefs and stewards in white coats were pressed into service to man the lifeboats, and it is believed possible that Mr. Woodward’s relative was saved in this manner.
