    Where can I donate 1920-1940s steamboat/tugboat photos of the Mississippi River?


      My Grandfather was a tugboat and steamboat Captain on the Mississippi from the 1920s-1980s.  His personal history is fascinating, as he was one of a handful of pilots that were licenced the entire length of the Mississippi!

      But what I really would like to talk to you about is a wealth of photographs.  He and my Grandma passed along to me photos of boats along the Mississippi and I know that someone would love to see them, but I just don't know who!  I know of a couple of steamboating websites, but they seem to focus on passenger boats, and not working tug boats.  Would you be able to "steer" me in the right direction? 

      Thanks so much for your time and hopefully your interest.
