Anyone out there know if there are any Titanic survivors left? Is Millvena?Dean still alive?

I rather doubt anyone is still alive from that time, unless you had babies on board or 10 year olds who are now 103 years old.

Actually I came across an old, but interesting website called Survivor's of The Titanic that listed 7 known titanic survivors that were still alive in 1998. Below are their ages in 1908 when this tragedy occurred:

(correction: The tragedy occurred April 15th, 1912)

Lillian Gertrude (5 years old)
Barbara West (3 years old)
Elizabeth Gladys (Millvina) Dean (10 weeks old)
Lousie Laroche (3 years old)
Michael M Navratil (3 years old)
Winnifred Vera (8 years old) <_<
Eleanor Iieen Johnson (18 months old) ;)

So far, I have only found confirmation of 2 deaths from the above list:

Eleanor Ileen Johnson - died March 7th, 1998
Winnifred Vera died - July 4th, 2002

So it is possible that there are still 5 known survivors. ;)

Did a bit of research on this subject for our 2003 game. Confirmed three survivors at that point: Elizabeth Gladys Dean, Barbra J West, and Lillian Gertrude Asplund.

Eliza Gladys Milvina Dean is indeed still with us. Born 2/2/1912, hence was 10 weeks old when the Titanic sank on 15/4/1912 (not 1908!).

So, no survivors who actually remember it?

Although the 5 1/2 year old might remember something.

Isn't it weird that the list of survivors in 1998 is almost entirely women, I know they live longer but still, I find it amusing.

I stand corrected, thanks RK. It is never a good idea to drink whiskey while researching <_<

I'm afraid to say that the LifeSaver was first produced in 1912 whereas the Polo was first manufactured in 1948.

I hope I've prevented a discussion about sweets turning into another nationalistic squabble but I doubt it. ;) No doubt the Germans or the Argentinians have an altogether better form of round confectionary with a whole in it. We'll have to wait and see. <_<

But are any of them famous enough ?

Despite the high cost of living, it still seems popular.

The candy or the survivors? :huh:

I would say they aren't famous enough or at all really.

No, I fear the sweets are more famous than them. We'll have to suck it and see...

Does James Cameron's career count as a casualty of the Titanic?

Never seen it so I neither laughed nor cried.

Laughed at the bunnies version though.

If only the people who put together that excellent bunnies' version had been allowed to edit the steaming heap that James Cameron put on screen. How the same man who brought us The Terminator, a witty, lean, poignant cinematic triumph that wrung every drop out of its modest budget, could serve up the better part of 3 hours of such inexorable tripe is truly one of the mysteries of motion picture history. And the Academy rewarded him with a boatload (yawn) of Oscars, snubbing the vastly superior LA Confidential? He's not even the king of his own living room.
