August 21, 2021, 1:30 P.M. – “Remembering the Steamer Admiral” presented by Anne & James Blum. Annie grew up close to the Mississippi River and she worked on the River Steamer Admiral for over thirteen years. Her husband Jim was the mate on the Steamer Delta Queen. They met when the DQ came to St. Louis for a visit. She began volunteering at the Mercantile Library on the campus of UMSL where the Streckfus papers are stored. Her work experience and history came together in two books : The Steamer Admiral and Streckfus Steamers, and The Steamer Admiral. Annie will be sharing photographs, history and memories of the Admiral most of us had the pleasure of experiencing!
