Thomas Andrews

Thomas Andrews (1873-1912) was a shipbuilder and naval architect for the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Ireland. He became a Institution of Naval Architects member in 1901 (RINA wouldn't recieve royal assent until 1910). While he had worked on the RMS Olympic, he is more generally remembered for his work on the RMS Titanic. Thomas Andrews predicted the fate of the Titanic when consulted by the ships officers, and afterwards was praised by both the surviving ships officers and passengers for his attempts to fill the lifeboats. He was lost when the Titanic sank in the north Atlantic.
