Biography

A wealthy Scottish nobleman, Cosmo Duff-Gordon won a silver medal in the 1906 épée team competition. Two years later, he served on the organizing committee of the Olympic fencing events at the Londen Games. In 1912, he was aboard the RMS Titanic on its disastrous maiden voyage, but survived. He was later accused of paying the crew members of his lifeboat not to return to pick up other passengers. This alleged cowardice was widely publicized, but he was cleared of the accusations in a formal inquiry. Duff-Gordon even made it into the 1997 hit movie Titanic as a minor character.
