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.

After questioning my mother about what I was seeing on the television she told me, 
"That's the Titanic. It sank a long time ago." 

The discovery of the Titanic dawned a new age. Titanic was alive again. It was no longer legend. It was real! Titanic has been part of our culture since the sinking. With books, movies, and musical stage performances, Titanic 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. I soak up any information that I can find and apply it to what I already know, and then judge it's authenticity. We know about Titanic before the sinking, but what happened during the sinking? Through books, media, and personal testimony, we can slowly piece together what really happened and why?
