The Institute for Regional Studies obtained all rights, including
the copyright, to the Fred Hultstrand and the F.A. Pazandak collections
at the time of their donations. Some of the photographs in the Fred
Hultstrand collection were taken by other early photographers in the
region and thus the copyright may be with others, rather than Mr.
Hultstrand. Whenever possible, the Institute has provided in the Hultstrand
catalog record all known information regarding the photographer, owner
of the original negative or print, or other persons associated with
the print. This information is provided as a service to aid patrons
in determining the appropriate use of an item, but that determination
ultimately rests with the patron.
Any use of prints from these two collections requires that credit
be given to the collection and the Institute. The proper credit line
for each can be found in the "Notes" area of the catalog record. They
are: Fred Hultstrand History in Pictures Collection, NDIRS-NDSU, Fargo;
and F.A. Pazandak Photograph Collection, NDIRS-NDSU, Fargo. Consult
the Institute's web site for
detailed information regarding photograph
use conditions, use fees, and permission to publish.
The nature of historical archival photograph collections means that
copyright or other information about restrictions may be difficult
or even impossible to determine. The Institute is eager to hear from
anyone who may have additional information regarding photographs in
either the Hultstrand or Pazandak collections.
