How did the Titanic almost keep UCLAfrom having the most national championships in college sports?
Ask Jim Bush, former Bruins track and field coach.
Bush, a member of the National Track Hall of Fame, said that his grandmother was left on the dock in England when the Titanic sailed.
“She had her luggage stolen on the dock, so she couldn’t go,” said Bush, who will turn 86 on Sept. 15. “My mom was just a little girl then.”
Bush’s grandfather had already emigrated to the United States. He was working for Hills Bros. Coffee when he sent for his wife and daughter.
