This trolley tour will visit the final resting places of those who were among the passengers aboard this “Ship of Dreams” who became permanent residents of Green-Wood. Dr. J. Joseph Edgette, professor emeritus and folklorist emeritus at Widener University, will share the stories of the lost and surviving passengers interred here at Green-Wood. Dr. Edgette, who has carried out extensive research on the Titanic’s passengers and crew, has lectured and written extensively on the topic. He is a member of the Titanic Historical Society and the Titanic International Society.
