My Statement

Hello, My name is Joshua Allen Milford.

I'm a Titanic historian that is dedicated to keeping the history of the ship and her people alive. I have had an interest in the Titanic story since the discovery of the ship in 1985.

In 1912, Titanic was arguably the world's first media spectacle with the invention of electricity and the wireless radio.

In 1985 Titanic was my first media spectacle. I was only 2 years-old, but I remember watching the news broadcasts with the rest of the world as we saw Titanic again 73 years after the sinking. Seeing the ghostly images of the ship as she came out of the darkness was a frightening experience to me. I remember asking my mother what it was that I was seeing on television? She said, "That's the Titanic! It was a big ship that sank a long time ago." It was my first experience of a ship, and of a shipwreck. From that point forward, anytime I heard the name "Titanic" those memories came back.


The discovery of the Titanic dawned a new age. She was alive again. 
She was no longer legend. She was real! 

Titanic has been part of our culture since the sinking. With books, movies, and musical stage performances, and she has never left the human consciousness.

In 1997, I became reunited with Titanic like never before. Of course so did everyone else, when James Cameron released his film, Titanic.

I was 14 years-old at the time, and ever since then I have been studying the Titanic disaster and the people involved.

We know about Titanic before the sinking, but what happened during the sinking? Through continued research we can slowly piece together what really happened and why?

It is important that the Titanic story is remembered and preserved so that a tragedy such as this never happens again. That is why I'm here...
