Passenger List Notes

  1. Samuel Butler (4 or 5 December 1835 – 18 June 1902) was an iconoclastic Victorian-era English author who published a variety of works. Two of his most famous pieces are the Utopian satire Erewhon and a semi-autobiographical novel published posthumously, The Way of All Flesh. He is also known for examining Christian orthodoxy, substantive studies of evolutionary thought, studies of Italian art, and works of literary history and criticism. Butler also made prose translations of the Iliad and Odyssey which remain in use to this day.
  2. William Powell Frith (19 January 1819 – 9 November 1909) was an English painter specialising in genre subjects and panoramic narrative works of life in the Victorian era. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1853, presenting The Sleeping Model as his Diploma work. He has been described as the "greatest British painter of the social scene since Hogarth."
  3. Mossant was a famous brand of hat manufactured in France and well known in the United States for most of the twentieth century. The company was founded by Charles Mossant in the nineteenth century, and by 1929 more than 2,000 hats a day were being produced. Charles Mossant, of the firm of Mossant, Freres & Vallon, leading hat manufacturers of France, died at Nice, on January 20, 1908, at the age of 72 years. Mr. Mossant was a well known personage, and held prominent positions in the civic and commercial affairs of his country, being president of the Chamber of Commerce, president of the Societe dArcheologie de la Drone, ex-president of the Commerce of Romans, ex-Mayor of Bourg-de-Peage, and administrator of the Banque de France. (The American Hatter, Volume 37, No. 9, March 1908, New York, 106)
  4. Alton Brooks Parker (May 14, 1852 – May 10, 1926) was an American judge, best known as the Conservative Democrat who lost the presidential election of 1904 to incumbent Theodore Roosevelt in a landslide.
  5. Original Owner of the Passenger List made the Notation: My State room 76, Seat in Dining Saloon 270 (Captains Table). This person also made notations of all Japanese Passengers (Aoki, Fonkuhara, Matoba); made an "X" by Major Miss Swift and marked ten other Passengers with an "--" after their name.
