The Titanic Tragedy: 100 Years Later

April 12, 2012
7:00 p.m.

Dr. Robert Willoughby, Chair of the Department of History at the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith, will present an informative and engaging presentation on the Titanic. The RMS Titanic, the passenger liner that struck an iceberg on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York City, sank on April 15, 1912, resulting in the deaths of 1,517 people. The program will re-examine the background of the tragedy, discuss why the loss of life proved as great as it was and delve into the most recent historical research regarding the events of that April night, one hundred years ago. Be sure to check out the ten-foot scale model of the ship on loan to the library from the Titanic Museum of Branson while you are at the library. Free.
