Montreal Daily Witness

Monday 22nd April 1912 Boy, Eleven Months Old, Saved When Parents Went Down With Wreck, Becomes Centre Of Much Attention And Smiles Happily.

Although Travers J.[sic] Allison, eleven months old, did not realise it yesterday, much interest was centred in his case. He is probably the most youthful survivor of the Titanic disaster. One would never think he had undergone such an experience to see him smiling and chuckling under the care of foster-parents at the Manhatten Hotel. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Hudson. J. Allison, of Montreal. Mr. Hudson was a capitalist in that city and had various interests. When the Titanic went down the Allison's were on board with two other children,[sic]a chauffeur and a maid. during the rush, and panic when lifeboats were lowered, the Allison baby was found on deck and taken aboard the second to last lifeboat that went over the ships sides. It is doubtful if another peson in the wrecked party recieved more care than he. He did not seem any worse for his experience yesterday and smiled heartily when his picture was taken.
