[FRIAM] Ownership of expired patent

I was awarded a software patent 30 years ago while at a corporate job.
That patent has since expired, of course.  I assume I signed a
work-for-hire agreement the first day on that job.

Now that it's expired, I also assume the corporation still owns the code,
and so I'm not free to open source it.  Correct?

Any IP attorneys here?
