General & Interdisciplinary

History

Advertising

  • The Emergence of Advertising in America, 1850-1920: "over 9,000 images, with database information, relating to the early history of advertising in the United States" (from materials at Duke University).
  • Ad*Access "presents images and database information for over 7,000 advertisements printed in U.S. and Canadian newspapers and magazines between 1911 and 1955. Ad*Access concentrates on five main subject areas: Radio, Television, Transportation, Beauty and Hygiene, and World War II" (from materials at Duke University).
  • Ad Research Guide from GSB - contains a section with several links to advertising images

News

  • Television News Archive (Vanderbilt University) "The collection holds more than 30,000 individual network evening news broadcasts from the major U.S. national broadcast networks: ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN, and more than 9,000 hours of special news-related programming including ABC's Nightline since 1989." Though there is a fee for copies, some clips are available free.
  • Baldy Editorial Cartoons, 1946-1982, 1997: "Clifford H. Baldowski, known by the pen-name 'Baldy,' depicted the local, national and international news of his day in the editorial pages of the Augusta Chronicle, Miami Herald, and Atlanta Constitution. His work is a rich source for those studying political reorganization in Georgia and the growth of Atlanta as well as the the Civil Rights Movement, the Cold War, the Vietnam conflict, Middle East tensions, and Watergate."
  • Facts.com: Look for the link for Photos and Graphics. "FACTS.com also delivers additional special features including maps, photographs, historic documents, and overviews of key issues, newsmakers and events since 1940."
  • Time Person of the Year, from 1927 to the present. Includes cover, text, as well as ability to do a photo history search. (Have to put up with annoying ads.)
