Last Titanic Survivor

This is a Friday, April 17, 1998 file photo of Millvina Dean, 86, a living Titanic survivor, as she looks up and smiles as she signs a Titanic movie poster for an enthusiast at the Titanic Historical Society's convention in Springfield, Mass. As a 2-month-old baby, Millvina Dean was wrapped in a sack and lowered into a lifeboat from the deck of the sinking RMS Titanic. Now Dean, the last living survivor of the disaster, is selling some of her mementos to help pay her nursing home fees. Dean's artifacts, including a suitcase given to her family by the people of New York after their rescue, are expected to sell for about 3,000 pounds (US$5,200) at Saturday's auction in Devizes, western England. Dean, 96, has lived in a nursing home in the southern English city of Southampton Titanic's home port since she broke her hip two years ago.
