Margaret Brown, posthumously known as “The Unsinkable Molly Brown”, was an American socialite and philanthropist. She was a passenger on the RMS Titanic which sank in 1912 and she unsuccessfully urged the crew in Lifeboat No. 6 to return to the debris field to look for survivors.
During her lifetime, her friends called her “Maggie”, but by her death, obituaries referred to her as the “Unsinkable Mrs. Brown”.
