I am so sad to hear this news. Ed was a wonderful man. I only knew him the last few years, but he was always my favorite guy that the Maritime Museum. Ed always gave of himself and volunteered all the time at the museum. He will be missed.

Ed was a very interesting & dedicated gentleman. As a fellow former Civil Engineer I enjoyed getting to know him through a mutual love of history & tapping him for knowledge during the Maple Leaf excavation project & when I was working on the subsequent Maple Leaf book. I also enjoyed Ed's own books & conferring with him on Jacksonville's own maritime history during the earlier years of the Mandarin Historical Society.

Ed was The expert on steamboats and everything nautical. For years he helped sort books for the Friends of the Jacksonville Public Library. I would watch for books about ships for him and he would do the same for me for history and genealogy. I would also see him at meetings of the Jacksonville Historical Society and the Southern Genealogist's Exchange Society. Every time I look at the books he authored on my book shelves I will think of him.

Ed Mueller was the heart and soul of the Jacksonville Maritime Heritage Center (aka the Jacksonville Maritime Museum) for many, many years. We in the JMMS family have been so very fortunate to have known Ed, worked beside him, and learned from him. Though he may be gone, he will never be forgotten. Thanks Mueller family for sharing Ed with us!

What a privilege to have known and worked with Ed. I first met him in 1985 at Morales and Shumer Engineers. One day he noticed a pencil drawing of the famous yacht "America" that I had done, and asked if had ever drawn a steamboat? I said no, and he asked if I would like to try one, and I said "sure". So more than 50 drawings later, and most published in many of his books, I guess he felt the answer was 'yes'.
