USS Melville

I have a photo album of my fathers from WWI aboard the USS Melville.
The album has pictures of everywhere the ship traveled while he was stationed on board. There are several pictures of the crew, other ships, prisoners of war, and mascots. The pictures have few names on them, they are mostly group pictures.
There was a boiler explosion on the ship and many lives were taken.
I have a copy of the ships history (pictures in the album follow this history) and a copy of the ships 1920 census.
The census lists names -position on ship and the state they came from.
Would share info and would like to see that maybe a naval museum might be interested but don't know who to contact.
