Easter Greetings

According to the Nebraska State Historical Society, the history of modern greetings cards began in 1843 with the design of the first Christmas cards produced in England.  Easter card exchanges began somewhat later in the 1880s.

To our knowledge, the University Archives does not have Easter cards from the Nineteenth century.  However, the below Germany-made postcards, addressed to Maize Jane Elliott of Connersville, Indiana, date from 1907.
