The Last Crossing of the SS United States

Forty-seven years ago, young Marlow crossed the Atlantic on the SS United States. He sailed to his sophomore year at a French university. He and his fellow students hung out in the first class lounge each and every day. They were not interlopers. An alum of their alma mater was a board member of the Cunard Lines. Through his largesse were they able to acquire first class accommodations at steerage prices.
