We recommend viewing Chicago Film Archives' promotional film produced by the Cunard Line during the 1920s that begins with the RMS Berengaria leaving New York harbor on route to Cherbourg or Southampton with the return trip to New York on the RMS Mauretania.

  2. John Washington Butler (1875 – 1952) was an American farmer and a member of the Tennessee House of Representatives from 1923-1927. He is most noted for introducing the Butler Act, which prohibited teaching of evolution in public (i.e. state) schools (and which was challenged in the Scopes Trial). He was an admirer of William Jennings Bryan.
  3. William D. Gordon (1858-1917) was a politician and attorney from Michigan who served as United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan from 1898 to 1906, and who had previously served in the Michigan House of Representatives, and as Speaker of the House during the 38th and 39th Legislatures.
  4. Cecil B. Hartley was a nineteenth-century biographer and etiquette expert. He is the author of The Gentleman’s Guide to The Gentlemen's Book of Etiquette, and Manual of Politeness: Being a Complete Guide for a Gentleman's Conduct in all his Relations Towards Society (1860), The Life and Times of Colonel Daniel Boone (1860) and The Three Mrs. Judsons (1863).

He also owned many profitable mines in Canada, Montana, Peru, and Utah, including the Payne Mine—which paid the most dividends in the history of British Columbia. Late in life, he co-founded the Cerro de Pasco Investment Company, which became the largest copper investor in South America and the largest American investor in Peru until it was nationalized in 1974.
