Historical NoteReturn to Top

Prior to the advent of broadcast radio and television, governments looked to other media to communicate information to their citizens. One of the most eye-catching formats is the propaganda poster, the use of which peaked during World War I and remained pervasive through World War II. The U.S. government alone produced an estimated 20,000,000 copies of more than 2,500 distinct posters during the First World War. Through these "weapons on the wall," governments persuaded their citizens to participate in a variety of patriotic functions, from purchasing war bonds to conserving scarce resources. These posters also strengthened public support for the wars by providing "message control" about the government's allies and enemies.

Many terms historically used to describe individuals and communities with disabilities are offensive and were used to dismiss, discount and dehumanize these individuals and communities. Terms often focused on a perceived impairment and not the person. MASC recognizes the harm caused by these terms. We retain the language in this finding aid to document history and preserve context.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

This collection contains 517 posters, most issued by governments to influence behavior and public morale. Most items are from the period beginning with the start of World War I and concluding with the end of World War II.

The posters found here were collected by the Washington State University Libraries, dating back into the 1910s. They became part of the College's War Library, a collection established in 1937-1938, consisting of rare books, pamphlets, posters, and other ephemera. The collection continued to grow through donations from various sources. In 2009, approximately 300 posters were assembled into this collection. In 2013, approximately 200 more posters were added to the collection. Dating largely from World War II and post-World War II, most of the added posters are in French and are directed toward Parisians, announcing war updates and requesting public action. The additions also include United States World War I and World War II posters, and Russian post-World War I posters.

Poster titles were transcribed from the item, where no title was available, one was created by the collection processors, Amy Sabourin and Morgan Clendenning, and is shown in brackets.

English translations were supplied by collection processor, Amy Sabourin.
