The Rescue of the Third Class on the Titanic

This final chapter concludes the findings of the journal. It states that contrary to the ‘popular story’ there exists no convincing evidence that passengers in the third class surged against authority and disrupted evacuation efforts, and instead summarises available evidence to determine that third class men had severely restricted access to lifeboats. It cites the moral problem of the dangerous individuals theory as a major contributing factor to the crew’s bias against them.
