Abstract: The Captain William F. and Betty Streckfus Carroll Collection at the Herman T. Pott National Inland Waterways Library contains papers, photographs, correspondence, newspaper clippings, river charts, vessel blueprints and scrapbooks which were the personal research of Captain William F. Carroll, with assistance from his wife, Betty Streckfus Carroll. Most of the collection is focused around the Streckfus Steamers Company, an excursion Steamboat business that ran for over 100 years in different incarnations, including the ACME Packet, the Streckfus Steamers Line Company, and Streckfus Steamers Incorporated. In addition, the collection contains records pertaining to post-Streckfus incarnations of the company; the Connelly Group, Gateway Clipper Incorporated, the Mississippi Riverboat Company, and President Associates. The collection further includes photographs, papers, ephemera, blueprints, correspondence, notes and clippings pertaining to the Streckfus and Carroll families, other inland river vessels, river-related companies, and general river lore, life and heritage.
