Thomas Andrews
Architect : R.M.S. Titanic
Thomas Andrews

Thomas Andrews, managing director and head of the draughting department of Harland & Wolff shipbuilders, was the man in charge of the building of the R.M.S Titanic. Andrews was known for being extremely perfectionist, but he was also quite caring and well-liked by all he encountered. While his creation sank beneath him, he worked until he was bathed in sweat to assist passengers to the lifeboats before going down with the ship.

My fascination with Andrews began with Victor Garber's exceptional portrayal of him in James Cameron's  movie "Titanic : The Motion Picture". He clearly seemed to be the most tragic person aboard the liner. As I learn more about the real Andrews and how incredibly well-regarded he was, I am even more convinced of this.
