Once Evans’ message had reached the crewmen of Titanic, the warning was allegedly dismissed by an angry and tired Jack Phillips, who had tapped out: “Shut up! Shut up! I am busy. I am working Cape Race.” The SS Californian, however, will be forever remembered and judged by history after it failed to promptly respond to the Titanic‘s distress signals, despite being only 20 miles away. During that period, the SS Californian was under the command of Captain Stanley Lord. He took command a year earlier, and he found himself and his crew in the North Atlantic after leaving London on April 5, 1912, embarking on a journey to Boston. Records suggest that Stanley Lord’s ship happened to be close to empty, not having any passengers on board. On the evening of April 14, 1912, the crew of SS Californian noted a number of large icebergs and, following the captain’s orders, halted for the night at around 10:20 PM. The captain preferred to remain in that spot for the night and then resume the route in the early morning. Source: The Vintage News

Due to popularity of the phenomenon, by 1923, issues of L’Auto had increased to 500,000 copies a day.

  186. 186. Raymond Benjamin Caldwell, (April 26, 1888 – August 17, 1967), was an American major league pitcher from 1910 to 1921. He was known for throwing the spitball, and he was one of the 17 pitchers allowed to continue throwing the pitch after it was outlawed in 1920. Caldwell was notorious during his playing career for his addiction to alcohol and partying, he possessed a self- destructive streak that many of his contemporaries believed stopped him from reaching his potential. In 1924, Miller Huggins wrote: 'Caldwell was one of the best pitchers that ever lived, but he was one of those characters that keep a manager in a constant worry. If he had possessed a sense of responsibility and balance, Ray Caldwell would have gone down in history as one of the greatest of all pitchers.'
