S.S. Grand View Ship Hotel memorabilia for sale

Olga Herbert, executive director of the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor in Pennsylvania, has a friend who wants to sell his collection of Ship Hotel memorabilia. Anyone interested in purchasing part or all of the collection should send their name and phone # to Olga at office@LHHC.org. In about a week, she will send the info to him and he will follow up by telephone. NOTE: no portion of the profits will go to the LHHC, she is doing this as a favor since he doesn’t have e-mail.

The complete story of the Ship Hotel is due out in March in a book written by, well, me. I began researching the Ship in 1988 and became friends with Clara Gardner, granddaughter of founder Herbert Paulson. Clara is gone now but her children graciously permitted me to use many, many family photos. Look for more peeks inside the book in the coming months.

    Brian: The cover looks fantastic, but it makes me kind of sad to think the ship’s gone.

    Nevertheless, I now know what Mom’s getting for Mother’s Day. I can’t wait, and congratulations!

    Hi, I am interested in the person Herbert Paulson. It says he is of Dutch descent and now I am wondering if he is the person I am searching for: Wilhelmus Hubertis Paulssen, born 17 March 1872 in Holtum, province Limburg, Netherlands. I would be very grateful for any information to share.
    Thank you and greetings from the Netherlands,
