The Duke University Libraries' Ad*Access Project "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." Some of these advertisements may be of interest to fashion and design students for their historic images.
