Carpathia – A Biography of the Titanic’s Rescue Ship

“On April 14, 1912, the luxury liner Titanic sank in the North Atlantic, taking over 1,500 souls with it. More would have died had it not been for the quick actions taken by Capt. Arthur Rostron of the Cunard liner Carpathia. As a result of those actions, 705 were saved.

This is the story of that fateful night. It is also, however, a complete biography of the Carpathia, from constructions to sinking. Included are the chapters on Carpathia‘s role in bringing immigrants to the United States, its career as an early cruise ship, and its service as a troop transport during World War I.”

    The book was filled with mesmerizing detail and
    impeccably researched. The anecdotes from individuals
    involved on both ships, the Titanic and the Carpathia, leave
    the reader awestruck.

    Hello Roger.

    I very much enjoyed this book. I am a doctoral student doing some research of my own on the Carpathia, and I am trying to locate a reference you used in chapter 3, footnote 18 (p.40-41). You cite a passage from a pamphlet describing the Carpathia. In your references, you note this source as: R.M.S. “Carpathia,” Liverpool-New York, undated pamphlet, CS, SJL.

    I am unable to locate the pamphlet in the Cunard Archives at the Sydney Jones Library, and will only be in Liverpool a few more days. If you have the catalogue reference number, or can recall in which section of the collection the pamphlet is stored, I’d be very grateful this information.

    Many thanks,
    Jay
