Unrelated to video, but I have no one else to ask:

I’m searching for a professor to get permission
for to use, or is this public domain, the Jan. 6,
1866, cover of Harper’s Weekly – titled, “The Last Chattel”.

Also looking for copyright information on images
associated with this image -- a horrible
exhibition race titled, "What is It: Or man Monkey"

Any clues to where I can find some answers on this?

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
