The Titanic International Society is a US 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the history of the Titanic and the events surrounding the great ocean liner’s sinking on April 15, 1912, when more than 1,500 lives were lost. The society holds biennial conventions and occasional special events, such as memorial ceremonies at sites associated with the Titanic and a tribute to Titanic writer Walter Lord in his Baltimore hometown. It is one of several organizations worldwide dedicated to the memory of the Titanic.
The society publishes Voyage, an illustrated quarterly journal. In addition to stories about the Titanic and her passengers and crew, other ships related to the Titanic disaster are also covered, such as the SS Californian and the rescue ship RMS Carpathia. Although Titanic is the Society’s primary focus, issues of Voyage have also featured other famous ocean liners. The Society’s logo reflects these multiple interests, with silhouettes depicting Titanic, the acclaimed French vessel SS Normandie, and SS United States, the world’s fastest liner.
