Paul Lee's Titanic Pages


Interesting stuff about the politics of Titanic. I've often wondered myself why the sinking of an ocean liner nearly 100 years ago could have caused so much acrimony among people who study it for a hobby.

Hopefully Phil will be able to allow free posting on here again soon, however I regard my £5 well spent on finding out the reason he had to introduce the fees.

Because people are people and they don't always get along. If they did, there would no need for courts, cops, the military, or forum moderators.

Beyond this much, all I can or even will say is that the public forum is really not the place for the discussion of such matters. What people discuss off list, whether by e-mail, private or instant messenger services is...of course...their own affair, but please keep it off list.

Paul Lee's website now has a warning that it may not be with us for long


This is the only site where we can access a lot of the Walter Lord/McGuitty archive as recorded by Paul at the NMM Greenwich, without going there in person.

Much else of Paul's website is invaluable, and very little of it is in his published book 'Titanic and The Indifferent Stranger'

I regard the following research by Paul to be seminal:-


Can anything be done to ensure this most valuable research does not disappear in to the Ether, and be unavailable to future researchers?

(I have emailed Phil Hind about this).

With best wishes,

Julian Atkins

A lot of it is archived at the Wayback Machine site already. If your worried about that site going down you can download and save whatever you want at his site. He has a tab on his site telling people to save what they want in case it does go away. As I stated before he has some really great articles on his site. I hope his site makes it. So many have disappeared over the years.

Thank you Steven!

I wasn't aware of Paul's site now having been archived on 'Wayback Machine'; that is some consolation, and relieves my immediate worries.

Cheers,

Julian
