The French paper Excelsior dedicated its 17 April issue to the sinking of the Titanic. They published the pictures of many famous passengers (Mme Aubart, JJ Astor and Madeleine Astor), but also: (1) J.B. Ismay, (2) Countess of Rothes, (3) Lord Ashburton, (4) Isidor Straus, (5) Mrs Cavendish, (6) Major Butt and (7) Benjamin Guggenheim. There was no 'Lord Ashburton' on the Titanic.
