About this collection

Illustration shows French civilians and wounded soldiers looking toward symbols of the United States, such as the Capitol and the Statue of Liberty. The Red Cross symbol appears in the background.

This collection of over 1,500 World War I posters in Temple University Libraries' Special Collections Research Center was donated by George F. Tyler in 1937. The posters provide a graphic portrayal of Allied propaganda used to educate the public and enlist support for the war effort. In addition, they serve as examples of the art, design, and printing techniques of the period.

An exhibition of a selection of the posters is accompanied by primary source material and commentary intended to provide additional context, insight, and interpretation.
