Description

A Titanic survivor on its 60th anniversary, the baby she saved, and the authentic account by Commander Lightoller

Three ALSs, two signed "Edwina" and one signed "Edina MacKenzie," totaling four pages, circa 1973-1976. Superb handwritten content as she writes comments on the Titanic's 60th anniversary, the baby she saved, and popular Titanic historian Walter Lord. In one, she writes: "Walter Lord the author of A Night to Remember was on To-day show on the 60th anniversary. He was ever so much taken up with my adventure and while I was at his studio, people phoned me asking if I happened to know various people who had perished and finally a lady asked what age was the baby. When I told her she said it was her brother, but he died when twenty years of age of the flu epidemic. Just fancy sixty years it took for me to know." In another, she writes: "Have you read the book Titanic, by Commander Charles H. Lightoller. I feel it is the most authentic of all the books I have read." In fine condition. Accompanied by two of the original mailing envelopes, both addressed in MacKenzie's hand.
