Kent and Parks- Congratulations on two excellent articles. I finally finished reading Voyage and I was most impressed with the depth of information that the two of you put forth. Certainly, I learned many new things which is a wonderful thing. Thanks for sharing all that new material and am looking forward to your new articles. Mike
I am pleased to announce that the Titanic International Society has now set up paypal to make it easier for new members and renewing members to send in payment for membership. We now offer one year and two year plans. The two year plan offers a slight discount.
This has been exciting time for TIS. Acquiring unique items for the archive such as the Boxhall-Carvalho letters, the McDonnell-Morro Castle files; revamping the journal for color photos, glossy pages and cover; and keeping current on the latest in Titanic/Ship research such as an interview with a survivor of the recent Sea Diamond sinking, a 2 issue 90th anniversary tribute to the Britannic which includes an interview with Britannic owner Simon Mills, and lengthy passenger biographies like the troubled Dr. Henry Frauenthal.
Titanic International Society has just launched a new blog, which posts about daily on links, events and news of interest. The blog is accessible here http://titanicinternational.wordpress.com/ or from a nav button on the main website,

Looks like there's going to be some really good stuff in this issue. Jack Eaton's article about passengers who canceled out for example to say nothing of the Morro Castle article by Jim Kalafus. If you enjoy intrigue on a Medieval scale, that one should be your cuppa tea! The Morro Castle was a veritable focal point for that.
