Default River History Book Collection

To begin these books are not for sale. I am looking for recommendations of a not for profit organization that I could donate them to.

I have been collecting River History books for over 20 years. My collection exceeds over 700 books. There are many first editions, autographed and rare books. Examples are: the complete Rivers of America Series, Almost all of the Corps of Engineers history books, and most of the known steamboat history books. Examples of the rare books are: Alan Bates Autobiography, Who's Who on the Ohio, 1916, 1922, and 1935 War Department books "The Ohio", Both volumes of CHITTENDEN EARLY STEAMBOAT NAVIGATION ON THE MISSOURI. In addition there are many books by Mark Twain, Books about Lewis and Clark, books about the great floods and a few Lakes of America series books.

I used these books as reference for my river history lectures. Most of the joy in collecting the books was the thrill of the chase. It is time for me to begin downsizing and am looking for a home for my books.

If you know of an organization that could use these books to promote the memory of the steamboat let me know.
