Chuck,

I suspect it's public domain since published in the U.S. prior to 1923, but you could check with the Art Libraries Society of North America listserv (ARLIS-L@LSV.UKY.EDU) or the Visual Resources Association listserv (VRA-L@LISTSERV.UARK.EDU)

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?
