Titanic findings to be talked at Laughlin Memorial Library

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Thu Apr 07, 2016 9:07 am

An Ambridge native will share her findings from an exploration of the ill-fated Titanic, 104 years to the day of the ship's demise.

Rhonda Wozniak, an object conservator who was part of a 1994 team that retrieved artifacts from the RMS Titanic, will discuss her experience on April 15 at the Laughlin Memorial Library as part of a presentation and dinner event.

The ship sank April 15, 1912, after hitting an iceberg a day earlier.

More than 1,500 of the more than 2,200 passengers and crew aboard were killed.

Wozniak, of Pittsburgh, spent time in 1994 as the on-site conservator during an expedition to retrieve artifacts from the shipwreck.

She handled pre-expedition planning and packing, operated the on-board conservation laboratory, organized the shipping container and presented artifacts for inspection and documentation.
