The Making of Star Trek does discuss the dramatic and storytelling reasons for creating the transporter, though the Cleopatra's barge analogy is nowhere mentioned. Perhaps you got it from some other source? In any case, TMOST was written by Stephen E. Whitfield. Bill Theiss was Star Trek's costume designer.
Quite right. I've strung some memories together on that one. Hey, how 'bout that? All that stuff I smoked in the 70's did some damage after all.
