    Charles Eugene Williams

    Update: Earlier today I sent an e-mail to the Titanic Inquiry Project pointing out their error in the transcript George Crowe's testimony at the American Inquiry. When Crowe alluded to passenger "Williams", TIP had originally said that it was with reference to Richard Norris Williams, while it...

    Good post. And it kind of confirms what I believe but can't prove. Which is that there were warning shots fired but that was it. Lowe did the right thing in my opinion.

    Charles Eugene Williams

    I did some quick research based on all that stuff that George Jacub has been posting indiscriminately, as though newspaper reports about the disaster were gospel. Following are a few things which show that not only was Charles Eugene Williams a volunteer to return to find more survivors but also...

    Charles Eugene Williams

    Precisely. Until the moment that Lowe asked him to get into Lifeboat #14, Charles Eugene Williams was just another passenger in the crowd and no more. I believe what perhaps happened was that just as #14 was ready to be lowered, Lowe decided that one more rower would help and other than those...

    Charles Eugene Williams

    Yes I tried to come up with a reason as to why Lowe would lie about putting him in the boat and couldn't see how that would benefit him. No reason to lie about it. As to Murdoch somebody here made a pretty convincing argument to me at least a few years back that in effect going hard over was...

    Absolutely agree. Murdoch comes across as the most level-headed,logical and competent officer of them all. It was just his misfortune that he was on duty on the bridge at that time. No one would or could have done any better. It was just that by the time the iceberg was recognized for what it...

    Yes many versions of the saving the baby story invented by the press. But I hadn't heard of the Murdoch part until now.

    Charles Eugene Williams

    This sounds like Williams jumped into the sea soon after seeing the iceberg that "loomed over 100 feet from the deck and broke amidships before floating away". But somehow he managed to find himself in a waterlogged lifeboat - the only one that was so 'up to the knees' was Collapsible A. There...

    Charles Eugene Williams

    Basically, a lot of things with the Titanic have to be considered based only on collective analysis of various survivor accounts and drawing the most likely conclusion. There is simply no other way. That is precisely what writers of On A Sea Of Glass have done, going to painstaking lengths to...

    Charles Eugene Williams

    I was looking at the handful of male passengers who survived on port side lifeboats and one of them is Second Class passenger Charles Eugene Williams who survived on Lifeboat #14. In fact Williams and Masabumi Hosono (#10) were the only two male adult Second Class passengers who survived on port...

    Collapsible D and man/men pulled from the water.

    Well, this is an interesting hypotesis; I had never considered it before. Now I’ve checked the enquiry testimonies available from No. 14. It turns out that also on this boat, as for most of the port boats, men weren’t allowed to board: the only men who boarded it were some crewmembers (Lowe...

    Attitudes and Class Distinction

    Hi Lars, Surely agree with you! This thread becomes interesting! Aren't you going a bit too far with Estonia? The disaster was of course terrible, but in the papers I could only read about some Dutch truckers who should have been onboard, about the bodies in the icy cold waters of the East...

    Who are the surviving passengers on this photo

    Hi Ben, Men on portside were not so lucky as men on the starboard side. But some men were allowed in the starboard boats. Lowe took second class passengers Charles Eugene Williams with him in lifeboat 14. I understand that Captain Smith put a young man in lifeboat 6 and that Major Peuchen was...

    Lifeboat 14

    Hi everyone, I had another look on the subject how many crew members were left after Lowe had transferred the passengers to other boats. He had including himself 8 crew members in his boat. So I was wrong with my number of 9. I had counted Harold Phillimore as a crew member when it left...
