ONE GOOD DEED INSPIRES ANOTHER
Naturally I was delighted by this unsolicited gift, and inquiring as to how she had come to think of us as a permanent home for her materials, she handed me a clipping of an article printed in The Miami Herald some months back. Entitled “Cruises Cached,” the article in the neighbors section had announced the donation by Laurence Miller of his incredible collection of promotional materials from the various cruise line companies in the post-war period. Added to our already extensive holdings of advertising brochures, menus, schedules of the interwar period, the Wolfsonian-FIU library is fast becoming one of the premier repositories of cruise ship memorabilia in the country. Pictured here are a few examples from Ms. Kruger’s most recent gift to our growing collection.
