TITANIC 2020 – with 20/20 VISION:


Was disaster inevitable?



Co-Chair Belfast Titanic Society and Titanic Historian

In 1898, author Morgan Robertson wrote the book “Futility” which appeared to pre-figure the Titanic disaster 14 years later with chilling accuracy – all the way down to the name of the ship – the ‘Titan’. Does this mean that the Titanic disaster was inevitable? Did the certain elements of the public see a catastrophic loss of life at sea happening.

In this presentation, Society Co-Chair Philip Armstrong looks at the story of how Robertson’s work was rediscovered after April 1912 and questions what elements of the Titanic disaster could indeed have been anticipated before the Olympic class had even been conceived. We will, in 2020, we looking at Futility and the Titanic story with 20/20 vision.

Philip is a practising solicitor with a particular interest in property law; in his day job, this extends to owning one of the largest conveyancing firms in the country, but in a Titanic context, he has a specific interest in the ownership of the wreck of Titanic and salvage over the years, and has consulted on various Titanic projects regarding artefact recovery and protection of the wreck.
