About the Project

This website is a combined digital exhibit and archive, created as the public component of a master’s degreeĀ thesis in the University of West Georgia’s public history program.

The historian was in the process of obtaining written copyright permission at the time of Mr. Corley’s probable death in 2016. The current copyright status of these materials is unknown, and they are being treated as orphan works presented under fair use doctrine for educational purposes.

Original materials are held by the Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University. The collection is open to researchers, and any further requests for publication should be directed to the library: Guide to theĀ Carl V. Corley Papers, 1930s-1990s.
