3/5 - Historical Perspective - Buckeye (2) and Olive L. Moore - Dick Wicklund
"The Buckeye (2) was built as the 524 foot steamer Leonard B. Miller in 1910 managed by W. C. Richardson. In 1920 this and other Richardson vessels formed the Columbia fleet of Oglebay Norton. In 1937 this boat was renamed Charles W. Galloway. It took the name Robert C. Norton (1) in 1958 when the ship was converted to a combination crane ship and self-unloader. It was renamed Buckeye (2) in 1974, retired from the fleet in 1978, and was soon bought by Upper Lakes Towing to be pushed by their tug Olive L. Moore, as a barge. The Buckeye (2) ran into the 1990's, then was replaced, and scrapped. And, yes, the Moore would later push the the steamer that was Buckeye (3), now named the barge Louise J. Kuber."
