I couldn’t agree more. If we don’t assert our fair use rights as academics, we don’t have them.

And it sounds like the odds are quite good that most of this stuff is in the public domain anyway. All the bombastic warnings demanding permission are surely unenforceable. I wouldn’t be daunted at all in using this stuff. The Authors Alliance just put out a nice new book on fair use for nonfiction authors that might be useful: https://www.authorsalliance.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/AuthorsAllianceFairUseNonfictionAuthors.pdf.
