Materials that belong to other collections or about the University of Maryland should not be placed here.

The National Trust Library Historic Postcard Collection (collection guide) contains approximately 20,000 postcards dating from 1893 to the 1970s with the bulk of the cards from the years 1900 to 1920. The collection represents over 3,000 locations in the United States, as well as a small number of foreign countries. There is a particular strength in cards from the New England states although all 50 states are documented. Most of the cards were commercially produced and depict early 20th century scenes from small towns to large cities. There is also a group of about 900 cards for which location could not be determined. These are arranged by subject. Researchers may also want to consult a related postcard collection at the National Trust Library, the Institute for American Deltiology Collection.
