John L. “Jack” Schneiders Collection 2008-5
Inclusive Dates: 1962-2008
 
Biography: John L. Schneiders and his wife Jean Alice Kennedy moved to Davenport, Iowa in 1963. They became active in the Civil Rights movement, joining the Catholic Interracial Council (CIC) and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Issues tackled by these groups in the 1960s ranged from fair housing code to fairness in schools and bowling alleys to equal employment opportunities. Schneiders was elected president of the CIC in 1969. He and his family moved to Urbandale, Iowa in 1970.
 
Contents description: 4.5 linear feet; this collection includes materials from the following accessions 2008-5, 2008-6, and 2009-18.
 
Clippings: Newspaper and magazine clippings on Civil Rights issues. The clippings material also contains correspondence, press releases, programs and booklets.
 
Topical files: correspondence, clippings and notes on people, places, events and topics important to the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s. Includes local and national material from the CIC and NAACP.
 
Schneiders created file guides (located at the beginning of the collection) by numbering select folders, which were not in any particular order when the Putnam received the collection. His numbering appears in parenthesis after the folder title where applicable.

Steamboating Collection
               Blair Collection 1921-14 (also 1940-14, 1961-121,1974-13, 1975-10)
               Maines Collection 1945
 
Inclusive Dates: 1830-1980
 
Scope Notes:
This collection contains information, documents and newspaper clippings related to steamboating on the Mississippi River and other inland waterways. Steamboat and captain/pilot files contain histories or pieces of information about the boats and personnel, usually from unidentified sources. The collection also contains correspondence between Judge Maines and individuals, organizations and photography studios from which he acquired steamboat photographs.
 
The materials in this collection were primarily assembled by Judge W. M. Maines and Captain Walter A. Blair. Some of the Blair Collection was donated by Gertrude and B. B. Blair [son] after Captain Blair’s death, c. 1940. Most documents are stamped to indicate the original collector. Additional newspaper clippings postdate these donations and are assumed to have been assembled by Museum staff. Smaller collections from other donors are also included.
 
Also see The Steamboat Photograph Collection.
 
A short cross-reference of names, based on folder titles, is included with this inventory. See card cross-reference file for full index of steamboats, companies and captains/pilots.
