Sometimes a Daguerreotype boyfriend distinguishes himself with a killer mustache or a pair of winsome plaid pants. Or sometimes they just live through the most famous maritime disaster of the twentieth century. Presenting…the hottest men who survived the Titanic. 
Richard Norris Williams, age 21
After freeing a trapped passenger by breaking down a door, Williams was washed overboard and swam to a collapsable lifeboat. He spent so much time waist-deep in freezing water his doctor later suggested his legs be amputated. Williams refused and went on to win the U.S. Tennis Championships in 1914 and 1916. 
Karl Behr, age 26
This first-class passenger was also a tennis star. He had been enamored with a friend of his sister, Helen Newsom, and followed her onto the ship. He was with Helen when he entered one of the first lifeboats to leave the ship and newspapers reported he proposed to her there. He was part of the 1914 U.S. Davis Cup tennis team along with Richard Norris Williams.
Jack Thayer, age 17
Thayer jumped from the ship in its last minutes, seeing it rip in half as he swam away. He was pulled down by the suction and surfaced next to an overturned lifeboat. His account of the night was was one the most famous recordings of the event.
