World War Poster collection

The World War Poster collection, housed in Honnold/Mudd Special Collections, has just been newly cataloged and its finding aid is now available online at the OAC.
This collection consists of propaganda posters from both World War I and World War II from the perspective of the Allied powers. While the majority of the posters in this collection are products of the United States government, this collection includes some posters from other countries, Britain and France, and from nongovernmental organizations such as the American Library Association, the Red Cross, the YMCA/YWCA, and private businesses.
Thank you to Carolyn Keim, Special Collections intern, for arranging and describing the collection!

New Acquisition: Soviet-Era Posters

Special Collections has received 24 Soviet era posters from a Claremont Graduate University professor, excellent examples of political imagery and message in the post WWII period in eastern Europe. We’ve digitized them, and the collection will be available in the Claremont Colleges Digital Library in the fall.
