Third printing. Wrappers lightly rubbed. 1993 Trade Paperback. 82 pp. Margaret Brown (née Tobin; July 18, 1867 – October 26, 1932), posthumously known as The Unsinkable Molly Brown, was an American socialite and philanthropist. She unsuccessfully encouraged the crew in Lifeboat No. 6 to return to the debris field of the 1912 sinking of RMS Titanic to look for survivors.[1] During her lifetime, her friends called her Maggie, but even by her death, obituaries referred to her as the Unsinkable Mrs. Brown.[2] The reference was further reinforced by a 1960 Broadway musical based on her life and its 1964 film adaptation which were both entitled The Unsinkable Molly Brown.
