The Friends of the Georgia Archives held a used book sale at the beginning of November 2006. As the unsold books were being packed up, staff from the Archives found a box of postcards primarily from the 1970s and 1980s. One section of the box was labelled "feminist postcards". Staff at the Georgia Archives do not know who originally donated these postcards.
Donated by Valerie Frey, on behalf of the Georgia Archives, November 2006.
All of the postcards in this collection have been digitized and are available online at Georgia State University Library Digital Collections.
