The recent attempts to raise the Titanic's wreckage have demonstrated that the myths have not lost their power.

As part of her work as a docent, she dresses in period costume to play Margaret "Molly" Brown at the museum. As part of the Denver Post's commemoration of the th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic on April 15, , we've invited five experts in some aspect of the tragedy to blog for our website.
Their fascination with the topic, in many ways, mirrors the enduring fascination of us all with the story of the giant oceanliner that hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. Over the next month, our bloggers will provide us insights into the ship's history, the cultural context of the times and the passengers, including the indomitable Margaret "Molly" Brown of Denver who was aboard the vessel when it went down.
