The Story of the Titanic Told in Pictures

Margaret Tobin Brown, known to the world as "the unsinkable Molly Brown."

Ms. Brown took charge of Lifeboat 6 and threatened to throw Quartermaster Robert Hichens overboard when he refused to allow her and the other women in Lifeboat 6 to row back to the site of the Titanic's sinking to look for survivors in the water. She died 20 years after surviving the Titanic. (No one called her Molly until after her death.)
