This image is apparently part of a post-war advertising campaign. According to an article in The Historian, June 22, 1999, similar posters were printed as advertisements in the University Daily Kansan in April 1946.

This poster is not listed in library catalogs or indexes as of 6/5/06.

A similar Frank Sinatra poster is in the Penn State collection, union printed, and labeled "CIO Committee to Abolish Racial Discrimination," " Distributed by CIO Department of Research and Education."
