Ocean Liner Sails for Europe with Notable Passengers Aboard

In March of 1924, Prince Viggo of Denmark confirmed his departure from the United States on the White Star liner Olympic, following the announcement of his engagement to Miss Eleanor Margaret Green of New York and Long Island. With his return to his native Denmark, preparations were underway for a wedding to be held in June of that year. However, the prince clarified that the ceremony was to occur not in Denmark, but surprisingly, in New York.

Among the other passengers on the Olympic was W. P. G. Harding, a renowned financier and the head of the Boston Federal Reserve Bank. Harding sought solitude on the vessel following a personal tragedy that involved the passing of his wife and daughter.

Brightening the sombre mood was film star Pearl White, celebrating her recent lawful victory. She had plans of returning to Europe for leisure and indulgence.

Another notable passenger was Countess Otto von Salm, herself recently related by marriage to Millicent Rogers. She voiced her discontentment about her brother-in-law’s recent plunge into journalism and his sharing of private family matters.
