First Class Passengers


With the blizzard raging there's nothing to do but go through old scrapbooks. The menu and photos are from a THS convention in Wilmington in 1987. I was thrilled to find Holly Silverthorne, Spencer's daughter-in-law was my room mate. She was such a cheerful lady - in her plaid scottish tam o' shanter. She was late to the banquet that night but Don Lynch graciously gave up his seat at the head table and she could talk of nothing else as we chattered later that night back in our room. She sat right next to Dr. Ballard and Walter Lord which was the thrill of a lifetime for her. The lady to the right is Karl Behr's daughter Sally Pettit- such a sweet lady who sadly passed away in 1995. Her husband Sam signed the menu too- they both lived in Wilmington Delaware so it was convenient for them to attend. Such a stellar Titanic assemblage I never saw before at one table. Those were good old days.
