Unfortunately due to copyrights and other issues, I'm not permitted to post the photo of Milton C. Long.

Sorry guys, I was hoping to post it for you.

Best regards,

Jason

Jason, thanks for going out of your way and doing the search. I have tried to search google, with no good results. One of these days I am buying the a&e series.

Thanks Brandon.

Adam,

You're welcome. I also did a search through Google along with Yahoo and MSN, but I couldn't find a thing. If you'd like, I can try photocopying it and I'll send it to you and Brandon.

Best regards,

Jason

Hi Adam,

I did come across a site which included a good Milton Long photo (with Karen Kamuda signature) and, considering it a good find, I immediately added it to my favourites. Unfortunately, a "file not found" error message appears whenever I now attempt to access the link. If you type in "Milton Clyde Long" in the yahoo search engine you'll see a link to "Thelma (MacDonald) Carabetta" which I believe includes the pic. Thankfully I had the presence of mind then to print out the image before the site disappeared into the ether!

Good luck,
Ben

Hi Trevor,

That's the photo I was referring to in my last post in this thread. Thanks for posting the link, I wasn't aware that the THS had uploaded the image of Milton Long.

I have a photo of his grave, which I will be adding to his biography soon.

Hi Jason,

Your very welcome, I'm glad I could be of help. I read in a different thread Jack Thayer wrote the Longs requesting a photo of Milton.It makes me wonder if he ever received one, and if so, if it still exists.

I've looked, and this is the only photo I could find of the man

Hi Trevor,

I remember reading about that and I've pondered about it as well. If indeed Jack Thayer did receive a photo of Milton and it still exists, it's most likely with the family. But, I'm just speculating.

As far as I know, that photo is the only one that has been published.

Best regards,

Jason

After checking out the photo in the THS link, I can say that I have seen another photo of Milton Long. This was flashed briefly on the A&E special Titanic during the reading of Jack Thayer's account of how he and Milton jumped off.

Whereas the photo linked above showed his face turned toward his left, the photo on the A&E program was a head on shot. Anyone who has a copy of that program can find this segment in the 3rd quarter of the special.

Arthur, Thanks for the information regarding this A&E special...I wonder if someone on this board can get a hold of the program and let us know...

I watched the tapes of the special again, and now I'm not so sure the picture of Milton Long is different from the one in the museum. For one thing on the A&E special, his picture when shown faded in and out in seconds and the edges were blurred into the general graphics of crashing waves. With those factors, I percieved that display on TV to be different from the clean picture in the museum photo.
