Margaret "Molly" Brown (1867 1932) was a wealthy American lady who was travelling first class on the Titanic. She became famous for her bravery on board the ship, helping other women and children into lifeboats before her. When she was finally persuaded into a lifeboat herself, she begged that the lifeboat row back towards the Titanic to attempt to rescue more survivors, although the Quartermaster in charge of the lifeboat thought it was too dangerous. Margaret became known affectionately as "the unsinkable Molly Brown".
Sir Arthur Henry Rostron (1869 - 1940) was Captain of the ocean liner RMS Carpathia when it rescued the survivors of the RMS Titanic. When the Titanic struck an iceberg on 15th April 1912, the Carpathia answered her distress call and was able to rescue the surviving passengers and crew.
Joseph Bruce Ismay (1862 1937) was Chairman and Managing Director of the White Star Line, his family's shipping company, which owned the Titanic.
