From the New York Times on this day in 1937:

AUTOGRAPH HORDE OUSTED FROM LINER; Officials Open Drive Against Annoyers of Celebrities at Sailing of Queen Mary

As the liner Queen Mary prepared to sail for Channel ports with 1,200 passengers, special policemen emplayed by the line herded two score autograph hunters from the ship and told them to leave the pier.
