To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, the staff of the John Hay Library will display several news accounts of the disaster, including articles from the 1912 Providence Journal.

Mike Umbricht of Ladd Observatory will also be there to show how the stars would have looked above the Titanic using a contemporary Planisphere by George Philip and Son of Liverpool, from the special collections at the Library.

Please join us at noon on Tuesday April 17th in the Lownes Room
