If you go to your library there will probably be a book called "Titanic:Women and Children First" I have it...great book. It might be "Titanic Women and Children Only," I forget. But in the book it had a photos of Edith Haisman. I have a couple old age photos and I might have a younger one. Send me your email address and I will see what I can do.
Hi, Andrew! David Haisman has contributed an excellent article about his mother, Edith Brown Haisman, to the current issue of "Voyage," the quarterly journal of the Titanic International Society (#57, Autumn 2006). The article is a follow-up to his 1999 biography of his mother, "I'll Meet You In New York." Both are excellent sources of information for those interested in Mrs. Haisman and her Titanic experience.
As you can see, the post immediately above yours is from Mr. Haisman himself, so perhaps he'll pop in and answer your questions.
I need to contact to David Haisman by a question and it requests that it does it to its personal email, but he himself not this in ET. as I connect myself with? Jeny, Mark and Victory Carter my email is [email protected] please I need aid.
I would like to take this time to remember Edith Brown Haisman. If she were still alive today, she would be 110 years old. She survived the Titanic disaster at the age of 15 in Lifeboat 14 with her mother but lost her father. Her father waved to them saying, "So long, I will see you in New York" and that was the last time she saw him. She even went back to the Titanic wreck site to remember her father in 1996. In January 1997, she passed away at the age of 100 and was reunited with her beloved family at last.

Andrew, I remember when Edith died; she was one of the many survivors I had hoped I would meet someday.
In August 1997 I briefly met her daughter, and she accepted some flowers to place at her mother's grave.
Then in November 1997, Edith's name was among the many read during the annual All Souls Mass held at my church (to honor those who died in the previous year). A copy of the church program was forwarded to Edith's daughter, who was quite pleased.
