Benjamin Guggenheim was one of the better known men who died on the ship.
A millionaire businessman, he traveled in First Class alongside celebrities, nobility and the other wealthy passengers. The way that he died has also become legendary.
After escorting his mistress and her maid onto a lifeboat, he and his valet dressed in full formal evening attire.
The gentlemen were seen relaxing in the smoking lounge, while all over the Titanic everything else was in panic and chaos. Benjamin was sipping brandy from a fine glass, while his valet stood to attention. He blithely informed Second Captain Lightoller, "We've dressed up in our best and are prepared to go down like gentlemen."
Later on the pair did return to the deck, but only to pull out a couple of deck-chairs. They sat drinking brandy and smoking cigars, neither even attempting to get into a lifeboat.
Benjamin did send a message via a survivor though. He said, "Tell my wife, if it should happen that my secretary and I both go down, tell her I played the game out straight to the end. No woman shall be left aboard this ship because Ben Guggenheim was a coward."
They both died and their bodies were never recovered from the Atlantic Ocean. But does that necessarily mean that Benjamin Guggenheim never came home?
Monmouth University, in New Jersey, USA, has several buildings on its campus, which once formed part of the Guggenheim family's summer house. The clue is in their names - the Guggenheim Library and the Guggenheim Theater.
Both have been witness to a shadowy figure walking around them. Moreover, lights that have been switched off suddenly turn back on again, after staff have just locked up and are walking away from the door. Local lore has it that Benjamin came back after all.
