Description

When Margaret Tobin Brown arrived in New York City shortly after her perilous night in Lifeboat #6, a legend was born. Applauded for her tireless work on behalf of the poorest survivors -- especially women in steerage who had lost all family and possessions, and who spoke no English -- Brown soon became famous throughout the nation and the world. Through magazines, books, a Broadway musical, and a Hollywood movie, she became The Unsinkable Molly Brown, but in the process her life was distorted beyond recognition. Even her name was changed -- she was never known as Molly during her lifetime.
