Interviewee: Gionni Di Gravio, Archivist, Newcastle University
University of Newcastle Archivist Gionni Di Gravio discusses the “Deathless Story of the Titanic”.
Mr James Garaty donated a copy of The Deathless Story of the “Titanic” published only weeks after the sinking of the Titanic.
It was published by Lloyd’s Weekly News April 1912 and was issued in three editions within weeks of the sinking. Lloyd’s Weekly News was very similar to its competitor The News of the World.
The copy was purchased by James Garaty’s Step Grandmother Forence Ray Nixon nee Butcher in 1912 and has been in the family since then.
The Magazine is in poor condition given its age and the newspaper acidic stock it was printed on.
