World War I and II Poster Collection

The World War I and II posters are part of the Oversize Collection, which consists of unbound items from various Regional History Center collections that are too large to store in regular archival boxes. The Oversize Collection contains five major groups of documents: posters and broadsides, photographs and prints, maps, newspapers, and certificates.

The war poster collection contains 629 posters from World Wars I and II depicting recruiting, morale, propaganda, and production incentive. A full listing of the World War I and II posters can be accessed in the PDF inventory.

More information about the Poster Collection can be found in the collection's finding aid.
