Övrig information

A graduate of Princeton University and Yale Law, Walter Lord served in England with the American intelligence service during the Second World War. His interest in the Titanic dates back to 1926 when, at ten years old, he persuaded his family to cross the Atlantic on the Olympic, sister ship to the doomed ocean liner. Lord was renowned for his knowledge of the Titanic catastrophe, serving as consultant to director James Cameron during the filming of Titanic. A Night to Remember was published in 1955 and has never been out of print. Walter Lord died in 2002.
