If you are interested in the Aks story, I got the story right from the wife of Filly before she died. It differs in some respects from published accounts. My Mother and Father were friends of the Aks family when I was very young. I don't remember anything about them, except what my Father told me about the Titanic.
Would be happy to relate the story as told to me and what I think about it.
The collection, which included among some items, a scarf and perfume bottle of Mrs. Astor's, and a steamer robe, is no longer at the maritime museum in Newport News. The family has retained it in a private status at present.
