The Titanic Historical Society, established 1963, is the original Titanic Society -- the oldest and largest Titanic organization in the world. Our mission is preserving the history of Titanic, the people who built and sailed her and the ships of the White Star Line.
Titanic history is preserved in our publications, the Titanic Museum, our popular themed events. The Society has a superb collection at the Titanic Museum and the "glue" that holds us together is our premier quarterly journal The Titanic Commutator.
Astor's Gala, Bon Voyage Titanic, Titanic in First, Second & Third Class, Titanic in the Movies, THS's 45th Anniversary on Queen Mary, Titanic Sail Away Parties and Col. Astor's Rhinebeck & the Historic Hudson Valley. Tom McCluskie, MBE, from Harland & Wolff, Dr. Robert Ballard, THS's own historian Don Lynch and maritime artist, Ken Marschall have been speakers.
THS's 100th anniversary project was the Titanic Centennial Memorial at Oak Grove Cemetery, Springfield MA on April 20-22 2012.
THS was founded on September 6, 1963. 2013 is our 50th anniversary.
