After serving in Louisville and on the staff of the Pacific Fleet Scouting Force, Lt. (j.g.) Harverson was assigned to Utah 19 August 1941. Operating out of Pearl Harbor, the aged ax-battleship, converted to a target ship, served the fleet as the major antiaircraft training ship, as well a,s a key to developing carrier air-to-ship attack tactics. During the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor 7 December 1941, the Japanese concentrated much of their strike force on Utah in the assumption that she was carrier Saratoga. Torpedoed twice early in the attack, she had overturned and sunk by 0812. Like so many of her crew, Lt. Harverson gave his life in the opening moments of World War II.

Manned entirely by a Coast Guard crew, Harverson completed shakedown out of Bermuda only to be seriously damaged in collision with a merchantman 15 December 1943, on a foggy night off the Virginia Capes. Repairs were completed at Portsmouth, VA., by February 1944, and the destroyer-escort joined Escort Division 22. Departing New York 1 March, Harverson escorted a convoy to Londonderry, Ireland, via Halifax. In the next 14 months she escorted nine more convoys carrying vitally needed supplies for the European theatre safely across the dangerous North Atlantic.
When V-E Day came, CortDiv 22 was ordered to the Pacific; and Harverson reached Pearl Harbor via the Panama Canal and San Diego 11 July to begin refresher training. Harverson was still engaged in tactical training at Pearl Harbor when Japan capitulated, but soon she participated in the occupation of the defeated enemy's homeland. Departing Harbor 3 September, she escorted a convoy LSTs to Japan, where she arrived Sasebo 24 September. During the next few weeks she operated along the coast of Honshu, escorting Mt. McKinley (AGC-7) and supporting occupation landings at Wakayama, Hiro, and Nagoya. She departed Yokohama for the United States 4 November and arrived Jacksonville, Fla., in December for duty with the Atlantic Fleet. She decommissioned at Green Cove Springs, Fla., 9 May 1947, and entered the Atlantic Reserve Fleet.
Harverson was towed to the Mare Island Navy Yard in 1950 for conversion to a radar picket ship. She recommissioned at Vallejo, Calif., 12 February 1951, Lt. W. S. Slocum III in command; and, as the first of a new class of radar picket ships, she was redesignated DER-316. After intensive tests and vigorous tactical training, Harverson joined Escort Squadron 10 at Newport, R.I., 30 May to begin duty as a radar picket ship. While on patrol, the former destroyer escort outfitted with the most modern radar and early detection warning devices, cruised off the coast of the United States to provide adequate early warning of. any enemy attack. From her usual station in the North Atlantic, Harverson also sailed to the Caribbean for frequent antisubmarine and tactical exercises.
Departing Newport 15 July 1957, Harverson reported for radar picket duty at Pearl Harbor 18 August. There she joined the Barrier Forces, Pacific Fleet, to strengthen America's warning system in the vast and lonely reaches of the Pacific. After almost 3 years of barrier patrols out of Hawaii, Harverson steamed to San Francisco for inactivation She decommissioned 30 June 1960 and joined the Pacific Reserve Fleet, Stockton, Calif. Her name was struck from the Navy List 1 December 1966. She is scheduled to be used as a target.
Heritage & History
In 1911, Quincy Adams Harveson opened one of the first mortuaries in Fort Worth at 105 South Jennings, a well-constructed, three-room building on a newly-paved street just two blocks south of downtown Fort Worth. He hired Samuel D. Sloan, an embalmer, and obtained a wagon and a good horse. In early January, they provided their first burial service and so began a 100-year-old history of the Thompson Harveson and Cole Funeral Home and Crematory.
One of Mr. Harveson’s daughters married Grover Cleveland Cole, and these two men, named after presidents, joined together to operate the undertaking company called Harveson and Cole.
In 1927, Harveson and Cole moved to the Southside Masonic Lodge building, a prestigious 5-story structure on the corner of Magnolia and Fifth. Harveson and Cole occupied the basement and first floor of the building for the next thirty years.
Their relationships with the Masons and railroad brotherhoods solidified the funeral home’s success through the 1930s and 1940s.
On June 16, 1948, Guy Thompson joined Harveson and Cole and by 1957 was named vice president and general manager. “Mr. Cole Sr. was ill, our outmoded building and the Magnolia neighborhood were deteriorating, and a truly faithful clientele, who have always remained so, were wondering, ‘What about the new management? Are their facilities going to be adequate for the future?’ ” wrote Guy Thompson in his business chronicles.
With the help of banking friends, building contractors and loyal supporters, the company was moved to 702 Eighth Avenue in 1957. The site already had a rich history. The home was built in 1888 for Fort Worth’s first banking families, the McFarlands and the Connells. In 1957, it was purchased by the Thompson family and devoted to its present use. Every effort has been made to preserve its architectural integrity and beauty, from the gracious entryway to the carriage house.
The "Register of Commissioned and Warrant Officers of the United States Navy and Marine Corps" was published annually from 1815 through at least the 1970s it provided rank, command or station, and occasionally billet until the beginning of World War II when command/station was no longer included. Scanned copies were reviewed and data entered from the mid-1840s through 1922, when more-frequent Navy Directories were available.
The Navy Directory was a publication that provided information on the command, billet, and rank of every active and retired naval officer. Single editions have been found online from January 1915 and March 1918, and then from three to six editions per year from 1923 through 1940 the final edition is from April 1941.
The entries in both series of documents are sometimes cryptic and confusing. They are often inconsistent, even within an edition, with the name of commands this is especially true for aviation squadrons in the 1920s and early 1930s.
Alumni listed at the same command may or may not have had significant interactions they could have shared a stateroom or workspace, stood many hours of watch together… or, especially at the larger commands, they might not have known each other at all. The information provides the opportunity to draw connections that are otherwise invisible, though, and gives a fuller view of the professional experiences of these alumni in Memorial Hall.
