Since Smithsonian apparently doesn't quite get how the internet works, I've rounded up the web pages for these collections:
Griswold Chess Collection
, Cleveland Public Library.
, Boston Public Library (my favorite)
Arabic Papyrus, Parchment, and Paper
, University of Utah. (Try the "browse" drop-down menu.)
Tober Forgery Collection
, University of Delaware.
Nurse Romance Novel Covers
, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. (Awesome!)
Arents Collection on Tobacco
, New York Public Library. (Click on "Collection contents, then "Tobacco, its History and Associations")
Severson Collection of WWI Avaiation
, Saint Paul Public Library. (Nothing here, unfortunately.)
Judaica Sound Archive
, Florida Atlantic University.
