Margaret Brown (née Tobin; July 18, 1867 – October 26, 1932), was an American socialite, women's rights suffragist, activist and philanthropist. She resided for much of her life in Denver, Colorado. Brown was a survivor of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, which had a transformative effect on her social activism. Much of her legacy is preserved at the Molly Brown House.
Because of the 1964 movie The Unsinkable Molly Brown, Brown became commonly known as Molly Brown.
- The Titanic disaster was a tragedy that was as unnecessary as turning the Brown Palace Hotel into Pikes Peak.
