This weekend marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the unsinkable ship, the Titanic. It collided with an iceberg in April 1912 and took more than 1,500 lives. One of those victims was a Drake University student. His story was researched and recorded by retired Drake Librarian, James Leonardo. The house on 1209 23rd Street in Des Moines is the same one from 1909. That was when 22-year-old Ernest Portage Tomlin lived there. "He came to Des Moines because of Drake University, and he enrolled at the bible college," said Drake Librarian, Bart Schmidt. Tomlin traveled here from his home in London, England. He was studying to be a minister. One look at his transcript tells you he was a bright student. He got straight A's in everything from physics to Latin. At the end of the spring semester in 1910, Tomlin returned to England to take care of his sick father. Two years later, he was ready to come back to Drake. He sent letters to friends letting them know he would return. Tomlin bought a 3rd class ticket on the RMS Titanic for 8 pounds and 1 schilling. In a Des Moines Tribune article from April 16, 1912, one of Tomlin's friends from Drake was quoted. "We find that the Titanic was the only boat that left Southampton on that date and have every reason to believe that he was one of the passengers," said Will Mander. On April 20, his friends worst fears were confirmed. Tomlin's body was found floating in the sea. He is the only Des Moines victim lost on the Titanic.

Lecture by Troy Wellington Smith, Graduate Student, University of California, Berkeley Troy Wellington Smith received his BA in English literature and history from Swarthmore College in 2005, and—after some years of teaching English at home and abroad—his MS in library science from Clarion University of Pennsylvania in 2012. While reading in his spare time at Clarion, he was bowled over by the orchestral majesty of Søren Kierkegaard’s Either/Or, and decided that he wanted to write a master’s thesis on the Danish philosopher. Towards that end, he enrolled in an MA program in English literature at the University of Mississippi. Originally, he had intended to focus his thesis on Kierkegaard’s influence on southern literature, but his plans changed after a seminar on Lord Byron in the first semester. After writing his seminar paper on Byron and Kierkegaard, he presented on Kierkegaard’s reading of Byron at conferences in the US and the UK. One of these papers, “P. L. Møller: Kierkegaard’s Byronic Adversary,” was later revised and published in the June 2014 issue of The Byron Journal. In April 2015, he defended his MA thesis, entitled “Kierkegaard and Byron: Disability, Irony, and the Undead.” Smith has also given papers regarding Kierkegaard’s influence on American authors such as Richard Wright, Walker Percy, Flannery O’Connor, Carson McCullers, and Cormac McCarthy. At Berkeley, he hopes to broaden his knowledge of Scandinavian literature, not only for the sake of his teaching and research, but also for his librarianship, as he is intent on becoming a Scandinavian subject specialist. In his first year, he has been given the welcome opportunity to serve as librarian for the department’s library. This event is part of the lecture series accompanying the exhibition “The Sorrow of Too Many Joys: Satire in 19th Century France,” on view September 5 – December 6, 2015.
My favorite quote from the firefly spin off movie serenity in which they reference my favorite epic (or really long) poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge and my favorite iron maiden song. Remember...never shoot the albatross
