Source for JP Morgan's Involvement in the Titanic Disaster


Jason Mc

Looking for a source, preferably a human, who can provide factual, detailed information on J. Pierpont Morgan's "last-moment" decisions to pull his collection of fine art from the RMS Titanic's cargo and nix his reservation to join her for her maiden voyage.

Please contact me via email if you have goods. Thanks for your consideration.

As to Morgan's art, I haven't given that a whole lot of attention, but I do know that some of Morgan's art was being sent from England to the U.S. as early as February; whether any of it was ever intended to go on Titanic, I don't know.

As to Morgan himself, I'm fairly confident that a trip on Titanic's maiden voyage was not in the cards, for reasons explained in this thread:
