Emergence of Advertising in America: 1850 - 1920
The Emergence of Advertising in America: 1850 - 1920 Project (EAA), generously funded through the Library of Congress/Ameritech Digital Library Competition, is the result of teamwork and coordination between two centers at the Duke University Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library.
The majority of advertising materials are part of the John W. Hartman Center for Sales, Advertising & Marketing History; the staff of the Hartman Center provided selection, subject and processing information. The Digital Scriptorium staff dealt with the digitization of the ads, file management, image and data conversion, and placement on the web.
