Millvina Dean was the youngest survivor of the Titanic. She was only a few months old. She was the last Titanic survivor living until her death in 2009.

Titanic

Everyone knows the Titanic was big, and we have the hard numbers to prove it. Discover what made it a supersized ship.

On April 10, 1912, Millvina Dean boarded Titanic in third class with her parents and older brother. Her father, Bertram Dean, perished with the ship. Tiny Millvina was lowered into a lifeboat and was rescued along with her mother and brother. Arriving in New York City with nothing but the clothes on their backs, they were soon greeted by charitable New Yorkers who gave them a small wicker suitcase filled with donated clothing to help rebuild their lives.

This photo shows Captain Smith on the bridge with a young boy. I highly doubt that this is on board Titanic. But on another ship the Captain was Master of. This shows what he would have looked like on Titanic.
