The Titanic meant very little to me at the time. Nobody seemed to talk about it very much and the fact that my father had died on the ship didn't really make a huge impression on me. After all, what was the Titanic to me? It didn't seem to have any bearing on my world at all. That I had been the youngest survivor of the disaster meant even less! My mother told me the bare facts and that was that. It was something buried deep in her past and a subject that she didn't seem to want to discuss.
The Titanic hardly touched my life again until the wreck was discovered in the mid `eighties. Until then, I hardly gave it a thought. Suddenly however, complete strangers wanted to interview me for television and newspapers, I was asked to sign autographs, give talks and make personal appearances. At first it was rather bewildering but it's amazing how quickly one can adapt to new experiences. Since I love meeting new people I have, by and large, thoroughly enjoyed the last twenty five years and am still continually amazed at how the Titanic disaster still touches people.
Anthony Cunningham and Sheila Jemima have produced an admirable book which will please anyone with an interest in my life story. Between them the authors have spent many hours chatting with me to get the facts straight. In addition, they have dug out old newspaper reports, letters, magazine articles and photographs to make this biography as accurate as possible. I do hope you enjoy it. Millvina Dean October, 2008
