You could also contact the Maine State Historical Society to see if they would be interested in having some specimens for display withing the areas of Greenville, Jackman, and Millinocket. These would be towns close to where Mr. Murry lived, guided , and practiced his tying craft. This would perhaps be my first venue if I were seeking to establish a legacy for his fly tying skills.

There is also the Catskill Fly Fishing Museum, they may be interested in some specimens of the work and whatever historical evidence you may have pertaining to Mr. Murry's experiences and accomplishments.

Not looking to muddy the water here but I still stand by my original post regarding this topic. I am not suggesting the flies have no value however the word "Legacy" has a nice ring to it.

It would be nice to have someone build a shadow box(s) professionally done of course, and mount the flies. Small newspaper articles, old photos of gramps tying, fishing, etc., descriptions of the flies can all be put in a shadow box.
You could keep some, donate to the state, get ahold of a local TU chapter and see if they would have any ideas.
Now get them pictures posted man!

What ever you do, do not redo the cards or lose them Keep them with the flies they belong to. You can make the flies nearly worthless by loosing the cards. Photos?

Yeah,

About those photos? I'm starting to think there aren't really any flies. I would love to see them if they are valuable they must be a sight..............................

Another thing you might consider is keeping the collection together. Sometimes in antiques a massive collection, especially with the provenance you have, is worth a lot more than the sum of its parts. If you plan on selling them you might consider auctioning off the collection as a whole - you may get much more that way.
