Focus On Special Collections: Titanic

Posted by Ann Morgan Dodge on April 12, 2012

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, the staff of the John Hay Library will display several news accounts of the disaster, including articles from the 1912 Providence Journal. Additional items related to the ship (sheet music, poetry and plays) will be on display. RMS Titanic sank in the North Atlantic on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg; over 1500 people perished.

Please join us at noon on Tuesday April 17th in the Lownes Room to relive history.
