I've been using an Epson V500 for many years to scan b&w negatives from 35mm to full frame 120 film (2 1/4x 3 1/4), to scan color slides from 35mm to 2 1/4 square, and to scan prints up to 8 1/2 x 11. It will not do 4x5 or 8x10 negs. There is a price jump to get a scanner that will do those. I often print b&w at 11 x 17 and the quality is excellent. ( I use an Epson XP-960 printer).
The Epson software allows corrections to contrast, brightness, and color balance before scanning, so the images go into the computer ready-to-use. I do not use Photoshop or any post-processing system.
Whilst working with Remember the Rock magazine I would often send scans over that went directly to the printed page.
The newest iterations of this scanner should serve you well. Mine will do four slides at a time, so it would probably take a while to do 20,000 images. Just remember the word for the day: EDIT EDIT EDIT

I also suggest the Epson V700, 750, 800, 850 series.
There is a guy on Ebay who sells custom 3D printed holders for these scanners.
These scanners will do a 8 x 10 neg, most other flat beds do a max of 2 1/14 x 2 1/4 film.
Most of the time with my V700 I just set the neg on the glass and scan, if the neg
is curled I use a piece of non-reflective picture frame glass to keep it flat.
