Stewardess of Ill-Fated Steamer Jumps from Leyland Liner --- BOSTON, Oct. 10---Mrs. Annie Robinson of Liverpool, a survivor of the Titanic disaster, jumped from the Leyland Line steamer Devonian last night while the liner was groping through a heavy fog. Officers of the vessel, which arrived today, said that Mrs. Robinson had been in a high state of excitement because of the fog and the sounding of the fog horn.
She was formerly a stewardess on the Titanic and was coming here to visit relatives. n Contributor Mark Baber
Six months after the Titanic sank, on October 10, 1912, Annie Robinson, who had been a stewardess on the Titanic, threw herself overboard from the steamship Devonian after hearing its foghorn blow in Boston Harbor.
