All,

I want to alert the membership to the new ET Research paper, "The Wideners: An American Family" and recommend that you read this great article.

Congratulations to David Whitmire for his thorough and engaging study. I know this biography has been a labor of love for him and I'm very proud of him for sticking to what I know was a big job.

This piece will entertain all those interested in the passengers and their lineage. It is well-written and well presented and is really a very fine achievement for a young, first-time writer. He shows the talent and dedication of a first-rate researcher and I look forward to what his next project may be.

David chronicles the entire family here and with some good sidelights such as the Wideners' connections to other Titanic families. And ET's Republican friends will find amusement in the Widener connection to George Bush, Sr.

Do take the time to explore the fascinating tale of this extraordinary American family and please give a hearty ET welcome to David Whitmire.

Best wishes,
Randy

I know Phil and I can't be the only ones who think David's story on the Wideners has merit and deserves a little praise. Maybe folks just missed this thread, so I'm posting again to keep it fresh. To read the PDF article go to the homepage for the link.
