A Story of the Titanic

 

Headline from an April 14, 1912 Chicago paper about the sinking of the Titanic

In the spring of 1912, Rev. John Harper was scheduled to preach for several weeks at Moody Church in Chicago. He, together with his daughter Nana and his neice Miss Leitch, sailed on the maiden and last voyage of the Titanic. The records of Moody Church in the Archives includes materials - newspaper clippings, minutes, a memorial service - that tell the story of this small part of the larger tragedy, including the young women's account of the sinking of the liner.
