What about having a collection of "steamboatiana" sold at public auction? I supose doing it that way at least would insure that whoever gets it would really want it.
However, I'm sure there are dealers who buy collections at auctions and then break them up and re-sell individual items to whomever will pay their prices. This of course, could cause a valuable collection to be dispersed, thus making it impossible for anyone wanting to use it for future research.
