Emil Herbert Kiene

Carpathia First Cabin Passenger

Emil Herbert Kiene

Emil Herbert Kiene was born in Manhattan, New York on 23 January 1874. He was the son of glass and bottle merchant William Kiene (1846-1923), a migrant from Württemberg, Germany, and Wilhelmine “Minna” Behring.

Later a bottle merchant in the employ of his father, Kiene was married in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint Presbyterian Church on 16 February 1904 to Edith Marion Walters (b. circa 1877); the couple remained childless and made their home in New York City. 

A frequent traveller on business and pleasure, Kiene was a first cabin passenger aboard the Carpathia when that ship rescued the survivors of the Titanic disaster.

Emil Kiene died in New York on 30 December 1935.
