How cleaver of someone to auction off the spoil from the debris of the RQ. You teach at Washington University, I see. The father of one of our most beloved steamboat comrades, the late Benton Roblee Duhme, also taught at your university. Benton was a legend scrounger of steamboat stuff, and his collection was second to none. He had several artifacts from the RQ wreck, or so I heard. After his untimely demise at a too tender age, his "stuff" has not been heard about since-- or at least on this stretch of the Ohio River.
