Titanic Elegies. Gerry Gleason. 2012. Dedicated to Dr Robert Ballard.
This image is a montage of the main players involved with the Titanic Odyssey. It is like a trickle
down effect of finance and decision making. At the base of the structure are the Captain and designer who went down with the ship. The damage to the Olympic, which was Titanic's sister ship, various writers have suggested, may have had an effect on the Titanic, which was still under construction at that time. With delays added to its completion date the Titanic sailed into history. On the other hand, the fate of the Olympic was to survive, only to be scrapped in old age.
