Mrs. Bucknell’s husband founded Bucknell College in Philadelphia. She was traveling back to America onboard the Titanic with her maid, Ms. Bazzani.

While she was waiting to board the Titanic at Cherbourg, Mrs. Bucknell was talking to Molly Brown (as in the unsinkable Molly Brown) about how she had “evil forebodings” that the ship would meet with tragedy.  Molly Brown laughed at her, and Mrs. Bucknell took the opportunity to remind her of those words after the sinking, only a few days later.

Mrs. Bucknell and Ms. Bazzani were rescued in lifeboat #8.
