Dr. Melinda Ratchford will take you on a voyage in time to learn about the Titanic as well as to see her extensive collection of Titanic memorabilia. Meet the young Robert Spedden and his Stief bear, Polar; the world’s wealthiest man and his beautiful new wife who had to leave New York society under a cloud of shame; and the elderly husband and wife who tested the vow of “till death us do part.” You will experience the world of courage, fear, love and cowardice that is still alive over 110+ years after her sinking.
