Re: J Bruce Ismay (opinions)


Interesting points, Graham, and I agree: the public wanted a scapegoat and Ismay was the most handy,erm, victim du jour.

Rather a shame that Morgan didn't choose to sail...it may well have ended with Morgan getting at least some of the opprobrium and (maybe) with Ismay being able to stay at White Star and IMM.

That's true, but he wanted to retain either the IMM spot or the White Star spot (whichever one he hadn't resigned from) and Morgan said "No way."

He was schedualed to step down as chaiman, but I believe he was to retain his place on the Board of Directors, which he subsequently lost.
