Titanic Sinking - People from Boston


Many Prominent People Returning from Mediterranean Sojourns.

Special to The New York Times.

BOSTON, April 15.---Among the Boston passengers on the Titanic were Edwin N. Kimball, head of the Hallet & Davis Piano Company, and Mrs. Kimball. In search of rest and a complete change Mr. and Mrs. Kimball sailed from New York on March 6 on the Cedric for the Mediterranean. They stopped at Madeira and went as far as Nice, after which they returned to Paris.

Miss Elizabeth A. Eustis of 1,020 Beacon Street, Brookline, and her sister, Mrs. Walter B. Stephenson of Haverford, Penn., left New York on the Cunard liner Caronis about eight weeks ago for a trip to Mediterranean ports. They cut short their trip to return on the ill-fated liner.

A. W. Newell, President of the Fourth National Bank of Boston, and his two daughters, Miss Alice and Miss Madeline Newell, were returning from a three months trip abroad. While across the water Mr. Newell spent the greater part of his time along the Mediterranean, having visited the Holy Land and having traveled down the Nile.

E. C. Osteby, and his daughter, Miss Helen R. Osteby, of Providence, were returning from a tour of Egypt.

Percival W. White, cotton manufacturer of the firm of N. D. White & Sons. Winchondon, and his son, Richard F. White, were returning from a pleasure trip to London, having left New York less than a month ago. They made the eastward trip on the Olympic.

Maxwell Norman, the well-known Boston and North Shore clubman, had a narrow escape from figuring in the Titanic disaster. He had booked his passage on the Titanic, and had intended to sail upon her until last week, when for urgent reasons he decided to sail on the Oceanic. The change of steamers was made so late by Mr. Norman that his name was not stricken from the list of passengers on the Titanic which was cabled to this country.
