Now, I'm working for my extended essay, because I'm in an international school and it is for the IB diploma program, and my subject it is the rescue of third class passengers on Titanic. And, as I need some quotes in my work, I would like to have Lowe's quote about class. i read it somewhere and I'm not able to find. He says something like that the person is in fist, third or seventy-seventh class does not matter when the loading of the lifeboats. Thanks everybody.

I suspect this is what you're looking for, Jonathan - from Day 5 of the Senate Inquiry:

quote:

Senator SMITH.
What did you do about it yourself? Did you arbitrarily select from the deck?

Mr. LOWE.
You say "select." There was no such thing as selecting. It was simply the first woman, whether first class, second class, third class, or sixty-seventh class. It was all the same; women and children were first.

Senator SMITH.
You mean that there was a procession of women -

Mr. LOWE.
The first woman was first into the boat, and the second woman was second into the boat, no matter whether she was a first class passenger or any other class.
