Voices of the Past Campaign

Another facet of the Foundation’s educational initiative is the Voices of the Past Campaign. This consists of interviewing and documenting individuals that have sailed in the Queen Mary as passengers or crew and that are closely associated with the ship. These interviews with their stories and legacies are filmed by a professional production team and thoroughly researched and supported with ephemera and vintage footage. Voices plays an important role in narrating the ship’s lengthy history.

Queen Mary Collection

The Queen Mary currently holds in its archives thousands of objects that include archival photographs ranging from ship construction to the early maiden voyage and contemporary views, artwork, textiles, room elements and furniture, period magazines and shipbuilder models. The ship’s vast archives also feature an important manuscript collection and other ephemera such as passenger lists, daily menus, period advertisements and poster graphics. The Foundation is researching granting organizations to garner support to stabilize, catalog, digitize, and curate this important permanent collection of artifacts and archives.
