He Inspired the Nowhere Man, in Yellow Submarine

Son of an old New Orleans family, descended from French nobility, Jeremy duQuesnay Adams was a respected historian of medieval Europe. He was also at one point the roommate of Erich Segal, who later wrote Love Story, and who was a writer of the Beatles cartoon-movie, Yellow Submarine. The Dallas Observer reports that Segal drew on Adams’ name and education in creating the character Jeremy Y. du Q. Boob, “eminent physicist, polyglot classicist, prize-winning pianist, good dentist, too.” The character’s name was changed to Jeremy Hillary Boob, aka, the Nowhere Man. The character helped the Beatles defeat those awful Blue Meanies.

The duQuesnay family crypt is in St. Louis Cemetery Number 1 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
