HICKORY CORNERS, Mich. (AP) — The Gilmore Car Museum is presenting a program detailing connections between the Titanic and Michigan.

Historian Jay Follis is scheduled to speak Sunday afternoon at the southwestern Michigan museum and share little-known stories of Michigan passengers aboard the ship that sunk in 1912. Follis also will display rare and authentic Titanic and White Star Line items.

Follis' tales include those of a college student who started a publishing company with his book about the Titanic just weeks after its sinking and a Michigan senator who led an investigation into the disaster.

Cost is $5 or free with regular museum admission. It's part of a nine-week speaker series that's open to the public.

The museum is located in Hickory Corners, about 20 miles northeast of Kalamazoo.
