Default river expert gone

The very sad news from Marietta is the Joseph Woodson "Woody" Rutter has made his final crossing. Woody served as the S & D Board Chairman for many years, then assumed the office of President for almost twenty more. Woody took over S &D from his father-in-law Capt. Fred Way. He also was the Editor of the Reflector and was a fountain of knowledge as to steamboat history. In my case he was my mentor as I assumed the position of Board Chairman. The entire steamboat history, museums, library's, and writers who relied on Woody's sage advice will miss him greatly.
