The Titanic Disaster

New York Herald
New York Herald,
April 15, 1912
Serial & Government Publications Division (53.1)

"All Details Are Lacking." The New York Herald's headline announcing the sinking of the Titanic is evidence of how little the newspapers first knew of the disaster and the fate of the ship's passengers. The Herald was among the first New York papers to print news of the Titanic tragedy. Although the evening Globe and Commercial Advertiser had more extensive coverage of the disaster, most of the other morning papers did not begin their coverage until April 16, 1912.
