Cedar Rapids’ link to the Titanic

At the death of the last Titanic survivor, Millvina Dean, I thought it would be interesting to see what coverage The Gazette had of Cedar Rapids’ Walter Douglas, who was a casualty of that tragedy.

This pair of stories (published April 22, 1912) was moving, especially Mahalla Dutton Douglas’ description of the ship’s sinking.
