Default Ralph DuPae's photo collection

Ralph DuPae is donating his huge river and steamboat photo collection to the Winona County Historical Society. According to the story in the Winona newspaper (see link below), he began accumulating his collection, estimated to be worth over $500,000, after help and encouragement from Dr. Louis Younger, former director of the County Historical Society, and two river captains from the area, Walter Karnath and Allen Fiedler.

I'm going to try to attach a picture I took August 2005 when the DQ visited LaCrosse. Ralph's brother-in-law brought him down to the boat, and I captured a photo of Ralph surrounded by a small harem off the boat -- my mother (Helen Prater), and Lucy Stoll with her daughters Susan and Gerry. Hope I can figure out how to do all this.
