Collections

World War Poster Collection

From World War I French victory figures to grim views of the Nazi regime, these posters demonstrate the power of words and images. It's particularly strong in World War I French and American and World War II American "home front" posters, covering topics like war bonds, rationing, enlistment, security, and morale, and popular artists like Norman Rockwell, Theodore Geisel (better known as Dr. Seuss), and Boris Artzybasheff.

World War Two Collection

These materials focus on the World War II era from 1939 to 1945, and the immediate postwar period of the late 1940s. In addition to materials that were actually created during the time period, the collection may include modern studies and commemorative works about the era.
