"The publisher wishes to thank Barbara Hehner for checking additional factual details."
"I would like to acknowledge the debt I owe to my Titanic mentors: Robert Ballard, Walter Lord, Ken Marschall and Don Lynch. In addition to consulting all the books I worked on with these people, I also found excellent information in Alan Hustak's Titanic: The Canadian Story. The ever-useful website Encyclopedia Titanica was also a very handy online reference tool. John and Charles Loewen provided excellent information from their days at Winchester College, as did Suzanne Foster, the college's archivist. Thanks also to Merrylou Smith at Bishop's College School. And special thanks go to Titanic author and historian George Behe for his expert read of the text, and to my long-time colleague and editor, Sandra Bogart Johnston."
