Re: Gulf of Mexico shipping routes, early 20th century
Thanks for the forum post. If you go to www.worldcat.org and search for "United Fruit Fleet" you will get a long list of resources relevant to your topic that are available in libraries in the U.S. Also of particular use might be *The transportation system of the United Fruit Company* by Leona Frances Inglish. This was a MA thesis, I believe, done at the University of Chicago in the 1930s.
I hope you can keep us updated on your research. We are always happy to share original research with others.
