J. Mack Gamble Fund, Sons & Daughters of Pioneer Rivermen
The Steamboat Collection at Murphy Library would not have been possible without the generous assistance of the Sons & Daughters of Pioneer Rivermen. For over thirty years the Sons & Daughters provided financial support to Murphy Library through the J. Mack Gamble Fund to collect steamboat images across the nation. The Fund also covers the expenses involved in making the copy negatives and prints that make up the bulk of the Steamboat Collection Photographs. Murphy Library extends their sincere gratitude to the Sons & Daughters of Pioneer Rivermen for their continued support.
