Des Moines Man Lost on the Titanic

Des Moines Man Lost on the Titanic

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.

Dr. Matz discusses science fiction and reality in the biology of AVATAR

Life Science Library's Science Study Break program will wrap up its season on Wednesday with an examination of James Cameron's most recent blockbuster Avatar. Dr. Misha Matz of the School of Biological Sciences will decipher biological fact from fantasy in the world of the film AVATAR, examining real life science behind the science fiction. Pop culture and the academy collide as Science Study Break features relevant faculty and experts from The University of Texas at Austin discussing the reality and fantasy portrayed as fact in science-themed books, television and film. Past presentations have featured presentations on bioterrorism and its treatment in the Fox thriller "24," artificial intelligence gone wild in "2001: A Space Odyssey," the comic realities of Spider-Man and epidemiological models for the proliferation of zombies. Science Study Break occurs twice each semester and is generously supported by the University Federal Credit Union.

On Being with Krista Tippett and Ta-Nehisi Coates

In her Peabody-award winning public radio show and podcast, On Being, Krista Tippett provides a space for deep and meaningful conversations with profound thinkers of our time. In a live taping of her show at CHF she will interview Ta-Nehisi Coates, author of the acclaimed BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME, on the occasion of his latest book, WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER: AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY, a work that examines the eight years of the Obama presidency, a dramatic era in politics, activism, and culture that has reshaped this country and its public discourse. As part of On Being's Civil Conversations Project, they will explore issues ranging from the idea of a “post-racial” world to Coates' meticulously constructed case for reparations for slavery. This program was presented in partnership with The Institute of Politics at The University of Chicago.
