  •  
    "Bound for Glory: America in Color is the first major exhibition of the little known color images taken by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information (FSA/OWI). Comprised of seventy digital prints made from color transparencies taken between 1939 and 1943, this exhibition reveals a surprisingly vibrant world that has typically been viewed only through black-and-white images."

Welcome to The Anti-Saloon League Website... - 0 views

  •  
    From 1893 to 1933, the Anti-Saloon League was a major force in American politics. Influencing the United States through the printed word and lobbying, it turned a moral crusade into a Constitutional amendment. The League left a legacy of printed material at a site bequeathed to the Westerville Public Library which houses the Anti-Saloon League Museum
  •  
    A sterling example of the good old-fashioned moral crusade. Of course, we don't have them anymore, do we...?

Welcome to the Digital Library of Georgia - 0 views

    An extensive collection of texts and images detailing many aspects of life in the South during the twentieth century. Seems to focus on 'everyday' history rather than the big events. But then again history is about people, isn't it?

    Contains collections on World War I, the Depression, Women's Lib and Honest Abe, among others. I'd imagine it will grow with time.
