The Story of the Titanic Told in Pictures

John Jacob Astor IV: a real estate multimillionaire who went down with the ship.

Although Colonel John Jacob Astor didn't survive the sinking, his 18-year-old wife did. After seeing his pregnant wife, her maid, and her nurse into a lifeboat, Astor retreated to the deck of the Titanic. Madeleine Astor refused to talk about the sinking, except to describe her last memory . . . seeing her husband's pet Airedale, Kitty, pacing the Titanic's deck.
