Walter Lord


The Titanic is Walter Lord’s hobby and passion; he has been in touch with over 100 survivors, rescuers and others connected with the disaster and sifted out all the conflicting evidence and legend. On such research he has based this article and his book, A Night To Remember (just published by Henry Holt), which should remain a classic of the sea. He is a Yale law graduate and an advertising executive.
