I have to laugh as I had forgotten people who worked in Norwood referred to him as "Angie". To relatives, he was always "Skank" or "Uncle Skank". My aunt took me to the
memorial plaque they did in his memory. It was very nice.
Arthur Scott, the boy who she helped save disappeared after the disaster. I managed to track down a relative of his a few months before he died. They were weary of letting me speak to him though. Historians were boggled as to where he was and if he was still alive until I found his grandson. A few months later, his grandson sent me a copy of the Spectator. I was sorry I wasn't able to speak to him.
I do have Diana Preston's book and to be honest I gave it a less than favourable review on Amazon.com. Truthfully, she did utilize some great sources that many authors over look. I've have all of the accounts that she used in my personal collection as well. ( Most authors take easy way out and write about the war and not the disaster, this where Preston succeeds ). But what she didn't do was track down any relatives. The most interesting stories still lie within the families of those who sailed. Anyone can copy what they find in an archive, a true author will know how to apply what they find to help with their research. She didn't do that. There is a Lusitania survivor still living in Connecticut. She is 90 years old and still remembers some snippets. If you want to contact her, feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org
