The Historical Society of the Town of Colonie presents first-hand accounts of Albany survivors of the Titanic.
One survivor of the Sinking of the Titanic was Albany Native Gilbert Tucker. He was returning to Albany with three women, Lilly Potter, her daughter Olive, and Olive’s college roommate Margaret Hayes.
Arthur John Bright was an engineer and lookout on the Titanic. Bright commanded Inflatable Lifeboat D, the last lifeboat to leave the Titanic.
Bright and Tucker are both buried in Albany Rural Cemetery. And, all four left first-hand accounts. They are substantially different than anything you have ever heard before.
Presented by Peter J. Hess.
