PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Places with no or little-known connections to the Titanic are marking the 100th anniversary of its sinking and drawing attention to how large the tragedy still looms.
Two Titanic survivors who later became tennis pros are being honored at Rhode Island's International Tennis Hall of Fame and Museum.
Nearby on Cape Cod, a wreath will be laid for a radio operator who relayed Morse code messages as the ill-fated ship went down. In Denver, a musical piece composed for famed passenger Molly Brown is getting its premiere.
Museums in Las Vegas, San Diego, Atlanta and even Singapore are hosting Titanic exhibitions that include artifacts recovered from the site of the sinking. Among them are bottles of perfume, porcelain dishes, even a 17-foot piece of hull.
