can someone please list all the books written by Lusitania Surviors? that includes: whole books on the voyage, partial books on voyage, or just books written by themselves.

the only books you dont have worry about are:

Others will likely know more on this but I can think of Charles Lauriat and Lady Mackworth (later Viscountess Rhondda). Also you might think of looking for biographies of victims and survivors - like Lady Gregory's tribute to her nephew Sir Hugh Lane, a biography of Theodate Pope Riddle by her step-neice, a biography of Elbert Hubbard by his sister and a biography of Charles Frohman (I think by his brother).

Your best bet is to search by likely authors at BookFinder.com:

In addition, Lusitania victims Charles Klein and Justus Miles Forman were authors. Hubbard was of course a prolific author.

Lady Rhonnda also wrote an autobiographical book focusing on her suffrage career called "Notes on the Way." It would appear she wrote a biography of her father, D.A. Thomas as well.

Also a biography has been published recently of Theodate Pope.

Bestic wrote 'Kicking Canvas', an account of his days as an apprentice. He also wrote an account of his experiences on the Lusitania, but unfortunately this was never published and, while it was utilised by earlier Lusitania researchers, the MS is now apparently lost (although I'd be delighted to hear it has been relocated...).

A correction - the book on Theodate Pope that I first mentioned was not by her step-niece but her goddaughter (Phyllis Fenn Cunningham). The recent biography of her is by Sandra Katz, called "Dearest of Geniuses." Also Pope penned a limited edition, privately published account of her Lusitania experiences.
