Post-WW I Liberty Loan Poster
Raising money to pay off the costs of the war
In this U.S. government-sponsored poster, Columbia salutes an honor roll of patriots who have subscribed to the 1919 Victory Liberty Loan. The list includes such ethnic-sounding names as O'Brien, Cejka, Pappandrikopolous, Villoto, and Levy--"Americans All!"
||Posters were a simple yet effective way to reach new immigrants and the illiterate during the pre-radio era and in a time when print media were ineffective.
