In 1933, during the second week of May, the ocean liner Georgic traveled west across the Atlantic from Ireland to the United States.
One day into the trip, a pregnant passenger named Alice Nolan welcomed a son — the first baby ever born aboard the Georgic (which had been launched earlier in the 1930s).
The baby’s name? George, in honor of the ship.
