Default James Burns, builder of the Delta King & Queen

I am searching for a Delta King or Delta Queen memorabilia fan who collects unusual items about the boats.
Items that I have are from the estate of John J. Burns, who was the son of James Burns who built the Delta King and the Delta Queen. I was the executor for Johnís estate following his death in 2001.
I have a set of cuff links and tie pin that belonged to John. (Photos available for email). I donít know the history of these. I recall that several years ago John was invited to be a special guest on a trip up the Mississippi on the Queen and that this trip was a feature presentation of the California Gold TV series. This may have been related to that trip.
I also have several documents relating to James Burns, including a photo noted that he is standing in front of the Queen during construction, and a business card showing his position as Supt. Engineer, California Navigation & Impít Co.
Please have any interested person contact me. My email address is
Paul McCracken
