Pictured above: TITANIC, to be launched/Date Created/Published: 1911 May 31/LOC.VAV!/April 15, 2015 VAV!/April 14, 2015 This below os a listing of all passengers, some 2,200 people, known to be aboard the Titanic when it struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic the night of April 14, 1912.  In the early morning, only two hours and forty minutes after the incident, near 2:20 a.m. on April 15, 1912, the ship's forward deck slipped underwater. Her stern rose out of the water, exposing the propellers. She began to break in two between the third and fourth funnels. With air trapped in the stern, she remained afloat and buoyant for seval more minutes until finally rising to an almsot vertical position. Those remaining on board clung to the mighty vessel as she made her way to rest upon the bottom of the sea's dark and icy depths.  The account of survivors was published in the Los Angeles Times.  This list is by no means authoritative.  (The names of survivors appear in Bold type.)
