Milton S. Hershey, the founder of Hershey's Chocolate Company, booked two first class tickets for him and his wife. He canceled the bookings at the last minute, as he needed to stay in Europe a little longer than he planned due to business-related issues. The couple later traveled to New York on German luxury sea-liner SS Amerika. A copy of the check Hershey wrote to White Star Line as a deposit for the two first class tickets can be seen at The Hershey Store museum in Pennsylvania.
