Default Breaking News from the Howard Museum!

At their monthly meeting this evening, the 24 member board of directors of the Howard Steamboat Museum voted unanimously to appoint me the new director of the museum, succeeding Yvonne Knight, who has faithfully served with great dedication for many years and is retiring on December 31st. I first visited the HSM in 1963 at age 9 on a third grade school tour and was completely awed and captivated by Mrs. Loretta Howard and her wonderful stories of the river and steamboats. By age 14 I was volunteering at the museum, under the tutelage of Mrs. Howard and Miss Ruth Ferris, my St. Louis steamboating mentor. Little did I dream, at the time, that the day would come when I would be chosen to "take the wheel" as curator/director and to guide the museum into the future!

I am truly blessed and so look forward to the years ahead, and to taking the museum to new levels that will make Capt. Jim & Loretta Howard -- and all my other patron saints and friends of steamboating -- proud!
