World War Posters

As we enter the new academic year, and the third year of remembering the First World War, we should also remember how that war was sold to the people.  The University of Tulsa has in its collections over 250 propaganda posters, American, British and French.

World War One brought about the revolution in advertising and propaganda that formed much of the 20th century.

Our posters are visible on our digital collections site.  Please take a few minutes and look at them.
