This group has regional chapters and is, as the title suggests, devoted to steamboats and ships of the past and present. Their publication, Steamboat Bill is fabulous- it offers chapter meeting notes, feature articles, ads, and international news on ships. The favorite focus seems to be paddlewheelers, Great Lakes boats, Fall River and Hudson River boats- but many great passenger ship items are included and their archive of over 25,000 photos at the University of Baltimore, Maryland is magnificent-prints can be ordered. Check it out at http://www.ubalt.edu/archives/ship/ship.htm Meetings are held regionally on a monthly basis, usually with dinner and a guest speaker. There are national meetings as well. First class publication and photos- user-friendly website. Any members out there?
