This postcard from a student at the State Normal and Industrial College (now the University of North Carolina at Greensboro) reads: Shall write as soon as I have time. Have not heard from examinations yet -- am well and hungry -- Mary It is addressed to "Miss. Florence Osborne, Canton, North Carolina" and was postmarked September 24, 1906. The caption on the back reads: The State Normal and Industrial College was established by act of the General Assembly of 1891. Besides the main edifice there are five other college buildings and dormitories in use. In twelve years it has matriculated 2500 students. The President, Dr. Charles Duncan McIver, to whose efforts the establishment of the institution was largely due, has held office ever since its opening.

Public Domain

Public Domain is a copyright term that is often used when talking about copyright for creative works. Under U.S. copyright law, individual items that are in the public domain are items that are no longer protected by copyright law. This means that you do not need to request permission to re-use, re-publish or even change a copy of the item. Items enter the public domain under U.S. copyright law for a number of reasons: the original copyright may have expired; the item was created by the U.S. Federal Government or other governmental entity that views the things it creates as in the public domain; the work was never protected by copyright for some other reason related to how it was produced (for example, it was a speech that wasn't written down or recorded); or the work doesn't have enough originality to make it eligible for copyright protection.
