At the US Senate Investigation into the Titanic disaster, Capt. Rostron said that he received the distress message about Titanic from Harold Cottam at 12:35 a.m., Monday, April 15, 1912. He also explained that 12:35 was Apparent time, and time in New York was 10:45 p.m. Sunday night. Was he right? Was Carpathia's clocks 1 hour 50 minutes ahead of clocks in New York? Or, was this another piece of erroneous information that was blindly accepted as true all these years?

A new on-line article of mine addressing this has been posted on the GLTS website. It is called, "12:35 A.M. Apparent Time Carpathia," and can be accessed HERE.
