Bruce M. Caplan

Since childhood, well-known author and editor Bruce M. Caplan of Redmond, Washington, has been intrigued by the mysteries of what really happened to Titanic's passengers and crew on the morning of April 14-15, 1912.

In 1996 Caplan was urged to edit and re-issue 20th Century journalist Logan Marshall's book titled, "The Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters", published within weeks of the ship's sinking. Caplan shortened the title to "The Sinking of the Titanic."

Caplan has spoken throughout our country about some of the disaster's lesser-known particulars, including the fact that from the moment the great ship left Southampton there was a raging coal fire in bunker number 6. He contends that this fire could have contributed to Titanic's sinking."

Caplan has spoken about Titanic to school children throughout our nation. Most recently he was in Las Vegas for Nevada Reading Week. During the 1980's Bruce was a hospital comedian cheering up children suffering from leukemia. For two years on a weekly basis, he went room to room telling jokes and stories to the kids.

During the past two years, he's been lecturing on a dozen cruises where he has related all the aspects of the fascinating saga that unfolded almost a century ago. Caplan loves his audience and he delights in educating them about his favorite subject - the Titanic!
