Copyright Statement & Take Down Protocol

Wade Center (henceforth Wheaton College Digital Collections) make digital copies of archival materials available online for educational and scholarly use. Materials are selected for online access under the following circumstances: the rights are owned by Wheaton College; the material is in the public domain; or the material is made available for educational and research purposes under an assertion of legal fair use.
