I had the privilege of spending time with the Harveys when they rode the AQ. His son Paul is something like 6' 6" tall, and the bulit- in foot board in thier AAA suite was a problem. I donated the mattress from my crew room, which we placed on top of his and elevated him above the sutuation. The MQ was turning over in St. Louis the day the cruise ended, and the Harveys really wanted to see the MQ, so I rode with them in their limo & gave them the grand tour. He was one of the most gracious folks I've ever met... and a few weeks later a note from him arrived at my house, thanking me for the bed & tour... along with a Bose radio. So now... at least as far as Steamboatin' goes... you know "the rest of the story"... farewell to a true American legend.

Paul Harvey made a trip on the DQ during the summer of 1978. I seem to recall that it was on the Upper Mississippi. Somewhere, I have a slide of him at the railing on the cabin deck. Indeed, farewell to a gracious man, a friend of steamboating and steamboaters!

He made a trip on the MQ too around 82 or 83. I had some wonderful Pilot House conversations with him, mostly he asking me the questions lol.
