Captain Smith Quotes


Randy Bryan Bigham

I believe there was an interview w/ Capt. Smith in one of th NY papers in about 1907 at the time he was commanding the "Adriatic" or some such early boat. Maybe the "NY Times;" I have to check thru "Women's Wear Daily" tomorrow at the library for some "Lucile" ads & while there I'll check on this. Of course someone with more ready info may come up w/ the details before then. Still I'll be on the lookout.

I've read in the book "The Riddle of the Titanic" that Captain Smith granted an interview to the New York Times in Mid May 1907 when he was there on the Adriatic and that was when he made the comment "I will say that I cannot imagine any condition that would cause a ship to founder..."
Hope I helped.
