Titanic Historical Society

The Titanic Historical Society was founded by Edward Kamuda, and is one of the foremost experts on the great liner. Ever since he saw the 1953 movie by Clifton Webb and Barbara Stynwick (which I'll tell you about in a later post), he has been interested in it, writing to survivors. Once, when a survivor died, he had some artifacts which were thrown out by the landlord. So, he started the Titanic Historical Society which is dedicated to preserving the artifacts which passengers had. About 50 survivors he was able to contact, and now, there are none to our knowledge still alive. In the back of a store called Henry's Jewelry Store in Springfield, Illinois. Every quarter of the year, they release a magazine called the 'Titanic Commutator'. Here are links of about the Titanic Historical Society:
