Sample a Taste of Titanic
More than 20 men, women and children from all walks of life shared ties to Iowa and the Titanic. Some were wealthy first-class passengers like Cedar Rapids natives Walter and Mahala Douglas returning home from an extended vacation in Europe. Others were second-class passengers, including the Caldwell family, church missionaries who were returning to the Midwest from Asia. Still others were third-class immigrants seeking a new start in America, lured by jobs in Iowa’s farms and coal mines. What did they eat while traveling on the ill-fated liner? Join Darcy Dougherty Maulsby, author of the upcoming book "Iowa's Lost History on the Titanic" for a taste of life on board this unforgettable ship.
