Coming From Wales for Fights

Two professional boxers of Wales, Leslie Williams and Andy Bowen, lost their lives when the Titanic foundered. They were on their way to this country to enter the boxing game at the expense of Frank Torreyson of McKeesport, who was to have been their American manager. With the two pugilists was Bowen's sister, Miss C. G. Bowen, who was saved by the Carpathia.


[Note: Bowen did not have a sister on board, the reference may be to Grace Scott Bowen, an unrelated first-class passenger.]
