SS United States - Doing Some Research

Hello All,

First, let me say, WOW, what a great site. I'm a newbie but am already enjoying the site immensely.

Secondly, I'm the group master of The SS United States Group on Yahoo and am doing some research on the SS United States.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to media (newspapers, maritime trade publications, etc.) that would have carried news of the SS United States in the ports of Southampton, Le Havre and Bremerhaven?

I would also be interested in contacting the port authority/pilots that would have handled the ship during her active years.

Any suggestions?

Cheers,

Carl Weber

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Carl.
It may be an idea to repeat your post in the Hello forum.
You may get a wider response.
Enjoy the voyage.
