RE: JSTOR Announces Free Early Journal Content

It is a shame the JSTOR is limiting this to pre-1923 issues.  In 
my experience, most scholarly journals lived without copyright 
until the early 1960s.  The bulk of the JSTOR collection prior to 
1964 I suspect is in the public domain and could be made 
available under this program.
