… that today is the birthday of the Unsinkable Molly Brown? Margaret Tobin, born in 1867 in Hannibal, Missouri, got married to a rich silver miner before earning her name as the Unsinkable Molly Brown when she survived the sinking of the Titanic. Trivia fans: Margaret’s most significant work occurred on Carpathia, where she assisted Titanic survivors, and afterwards in New York. By the time Carpathia reached New York harbor, Margaret had helped establish the Survivor’s Committee, been elected as chair, and raised almost $10,000 for destitute survivors.
