Literary rights were not granted to the Wichita State University. When permission is granted to examine the manuscripts, it is not an authorization to publish them. Manuscripts cannot be used for publication without regard for common law literary rights, copyright laws and the laws of libel. It is the responsibility of the researcher and his/her publisher to obtain permission to publish. Scholars and students who eventually plan to have their work published are urged to make inquiry regarding overall restrictions on publication before initial research.
The Photo-Journal Collection is composed of newspaper photographs taken during the late 1940s to 1967. The photographs are of such historic personages as Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Among the most interesting photos contained in the Collection are ones of the execution of Benito Mussolini.
