    Last Dinner on the Titanic:  Stories of Those Who Were There

    Wednesday, April 18
    Noon - 1:30 p.m.
    Williman Room, Benson Memorial Center

    Please join the Library and Bon Appétit for the Spring 2012 Literary Cuisine.

    Come hear Elizabeth McKeigue, Associate University Librarian for Public Services, discuss the real life stories of some of those who survived and perished in the sinking of the RMS Titanic.

    In particular, Elizabeth will tell the story of first-class passenger Harry Elkins Widener, a 27-year-old Harvard graduate and book collector. Widener Library at Harvard University was built shortly after the sinking and houses Widener's rare book collection. As a librarian at Widener Library before coming to Santa Clara, Elizabeth was responsible for providing historical tours and training tour guides. She will share her knowledge of this famous Titanic passenger and his family. Elizabeth will also share some of the experiences of those in the second and third class aboard the ship and compare their stories to passengers like Widener.
