Anyone know of public domain paleontology papers being hidden behind paywalls?



I've heard complaints that less than scrupulous journals and content providers 
are hiding scientific papers old enough to be in the public domain (those 
published in 1922 or before) behind paywalls. Lately I've been uploading a lot 
of old papers to the Wikimedia Commons- the media repository operated by the 
same guys who bring us Wikipedia- and I decided that it might be a good idea to 
take advantage of whatever subscriptions my university library has to 
"liberate" these public domain papers and make them freely available. Does 
anyone know of any journals or Elsevier-type content providers that are 
charging money for very old papers that I might have access to through my 
university library?
