So they say, Kendall. According to Leadbelly they weren't 'hauling coal' that voyage. There is some doubt about the story being true, but, then again Jack Johnson was a pretty interesting study anyway.
I find the whole tragic Titanic business fascinating and would recommend Gavin Bryars' 'The Sinking of the Titanic' as evocative of the dreadful descent.
I don't think many people are aware of the full range of the passenger list. Thank you mg.
