A survivor of the Titanic disaster, Mrs. Harriet Crosby, will be buried in Los Angeles, Calif., Thursday, where she died Tuesday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Andree Hathaway. She had lived in California since she left Milwaukee a few years ago.

Mrs. Crosby and her mother, the late Mrs. Edward G. Crosby, were rescued after the liner struck an iceberg in the north Atlantic, Apr. 15, 1912. Her father, Capt. Crosby, founder of the Crosby Steamship line, lost his life in the disaster.

Mrs. Crosby, who spent most of her life in Milwaukee, is also survived by a brother, Fred G., Milwaukee. She is widely known in musical circles here.
