Great Lakes Seaman

My maternal grandfather, Joseph John Scharf, sailed the Great Lakes in the mid 1920s (two of the photographs I have are dated 1924 and 1925). I can recall him saying several times that he had served as Purser at some point and that he had assisted a female passenger who had been rather badly injured during rough weather. I am wondering if his name appears on any lists that someone may have or give some suggestions as to where I could start looking. Would really like to learn more about this rather interesting sojourn in my grandfather's life
