Americans All!

Victory Loan Poster, 1919

American magazine and book illustrator Howard Chandler Christy (1873-1952) created over forty posters for the U.S. Division of Pictorial Publicity during WWI.  Posters featured in the Simon Room this fall showcase how the artist adapted his trademark Christy Girl, an idealized American beauty, to inspire self-sacrifice on the home front and entice thousands of young men to enlist.
