Miss Grace Scott Bowen
Miss Grace Scott Bowen sailed on the Titanic with the Ryerson family as governess to Jack Ryerson. She held Ticket No. PC 17608.
Miss Bowen escaped aboard Lifeboat 4 with Mrs Emily Ryerson, her two daughters and Jack. Jack had been initially denied entry into the boat by Second Officer Lightoller but his father Arthur Ryerson protested that he should go as he was only 13. Lightoller relented.
Grace Scott Brown went on to become the principal of the St. Christina School of the Susan Fenimore Cooper Foundation and later headed the Latin Department at the Knox School for Girls in Cooperstown. She died of a cerebral hemorhage in Cooperstown in 1945 at age 78, and was buried in Lakewood Cemetery.
