Chris Klausen, an avid historian and collector of the unusual and hard-to-find artifacts continues his efforts to repatriate the major artifacts from Canada’s Titanic The Empress of Ireland back to Canada.
The Empress sank in 1914 with the loss of 1012 lives, surpassing even the deaths from the Titanic. On the tragic and fatal date May 28, 1914, at 4:30 p.m. local time, the Empress pulled away from her berth in Quebec Harbor, heading for Liverpool, England with 1,477 people on board. This was her 96th voyage. Over the years she had safely carried 186,848 passengers.This time the journey ended in the greatest marine tragedy of all times.
Klausen hopes to tour his artifacts throughout Canada much like the Titanic artifacts toured the world. His collection can be viewed at www.Empress-of-Ireland-Klausen.ca.
