Arthur Rostron Autograph Sold

Sir Arthur Rostron was the captain of the RMS Carpathia, the ship that rescued survivors of the RMS Titanic. The Carpathia was traveling between New York and Croatia when they received news that the Titanic had struck an iceberg. Captain Rostron is known for tirelessly attempting to make it to the Titanic before sinking. The Carpathia was about 58 miles away, and despite traveling at full speed toward the disaster, he wasn’t able to make it to the Titanic until 3.5 hours later. Captain Rostron received a Congressional Gold Medal for his life saving efforts.
