Capt. Don Summers has "covered the waterfronts" and I remember him from St. Louis days when he was involved with the operation of the Str. BECKY THATCHER. Have a good photo of him taken in 1970 with Ruth Ferris in her museum looking at a model of the towboat UNITED STATES. Later, Capt. Don was on the ADMIRAL and my next encounter with him was at New Orleans in the late 1970's when I was on the DQ and he took Capt. Lexie Palmore and me into one of the wheel houses aboard the PRESIDENT to see where the sidewheel had been replaced with a big "outboard motor"! A fine riverman indeed!
