Fashion on the Titanic

Gloves from the Titanic, salvaged and restored.

One hundred years ago, the United States and Europe was still reeling from the sinking of the Titanic.  Over the past month, there has been a flurry of interest in the unsinkable ship’s sinking. Here are a few highlights for those interested in more:

1.  The April 12, 2012 New York Times did a nice photo piece on the fashion of the Titanic.
2.  The April 12, 2012 Cambridge Chronicle did a piece on rare book collector Harry Elkins Widener – of Widener Library fame – who died on the Titanic.
3.  Ancestry.com has compiled a free, new database exclusively around the Titanic.
4.  Daniel Mendelsohn’s Unsinkable in the April 16, 2012 New Yorker is about why 100 years later, we’re still obsessed with the Titanic’s sinking.
