Hi all,

I will be attending the THS' convention in Halifax next month and I just wanted to know if anybody here that also belongs to the THS will be going as well.

Best regards,

Jason

Of course, the trick is to change your shoes on the plane!Pity Millvina won't be able to attend the Convention following her operation but I'm sure it will be a success even so.
 
She is up and about - refusing in true Millvina style - the use of a wheelchair, and threatening anyone who might dare to suggesat that she does with a taste of her walking stick!
She is hoping to make the BTS Convention, though she will have to spend much of the time resting, but of course is unable to travel very far.
 
With a mucked up hip, it's a wonder she can travel at all! Quite a testement to this fiesty lady.

Good to hear she's getting up and about.

Cordially,

Does anybody know if Ken Marshall still is guest of honour on the THS Conventions??
What I've heard they usually cut all contact with people connected to the RMS Titanic Inc. and Marshall joined them at one expedition receantly.

Hi Lars,

As far I know Ken Marschall is still a guest of honour at the THS Conventions. I haven't heard anything different and this is definitely news to me.

To my knowledge Ken is against any salvaging, but I could be wrong on this....I thought I read it somewhere though. I'll know if he is there or not next month in Halifax as I am hoping to meet him.

Best regards,

Jason

Hi, Lars:

Yes, Ken Marschall is still an Honor Member of THS. Even though Ken joined the RMST expedition last August, he is still on very good terms with THS and the Kamudas. What I always found odd, though, is that, when he was made an Honor Member many years ago, it was because of his work on the movie "Raise the Titanic" and *not* for his art.

Ken and I have discussed salvage extensively over the years, and since he and I are of like mind on the subject, I don't think he would mind if I gave a brief rundown of his opinions because he is not a member of this (or any other) group.

Ken is very much in favor of salvage and has been since the wreck was found. Although he isn't very vocal on the subject, he firmly believes that salvage is a good thing under certain circumstances and conditions. He also believes very strongly that the collection should stay together, be placed in a museum, and not be sold.

Sorry, Jason, I talked to Ken a few days ago, and he won't be at the THS convention next month.

Hi Eric,

That's too bad that Ken won't be attending the THS convention next month. I must correct myself on my earlier post as I thought that I read where Ken was against salvaging, but I now realize that I had only assumed that he was against it since he is with the THS. Thank you for proving me wrong on this.

Best regards,

Jason

Hello Jason and Eric;
I really wish I could attend the THS Convention and have a look on Halifax.
I just ordered the poster Greatest Work of Man by Ken Marshall and I believe this is the best Titanic picture ever made. What do you think?

Hi Lars,

I wish you could attend the THS convention as well, but oh well. I haven't see the poster that you're talking about. Who did you order it from?

I'm sure it is a wonderful picture by Ken Marschall, as all his paintings of the Titanic are. He really does bring the great ship to life in his work.

I'm interested in seeing this poster. Have you seen it Eric?

Best regards,

Jason

Hi, Jason:

If you want to see the lithograph Lars is talking about, look at the image on the page opposite the Contents page in Titanic: An Illustrated History.
(It is really a vertical painting, but the publisher cropped it strangely to fit the page.)

If you don't have Titanic: An Illustrated History, it also appeard in The Discovery of the Titanic on page 10 (I think).

By the way, of all the Titanic paintings Ken has done, this is his favorite.
