This is the personal bible of one of the least known Reverends on board the Titanic… Rev. Charles L. Kirkland. See the story of Rev. Kirkland in this months Vintage Voyage and read more about this bible. After the deaths of his granddaughter and great-grandson the whereabouts of this bible were unknown till it mysteriously reappeared at a local auction in Maine last year. Trustee Mike Beatty was fortunate enough to buy it from the local buyer. The whereabouts of his last letter home and portrait are still unknown.
