World War Two Posters

While doing some Dr. Leslie project research, I stumbled across an impressive collection of World War Two information that includes a very large collection of propoganda posters. These include tons of US and Allies posters.

The posters are organized by categories—Allies, Canning/Rationing, Civil defense, Conserve materials for the war effort, Defense work, Don't Talk, Home efforts, OPA (Office of Price Administration), Presence of the President, Recruiting, Save materials for the war effort, Stay healthy, Victory gardens/Save the forests, War bonds—and within each category are several posters with their relevant information as well as a large version of the poster (accessed by clicking the small poster).

The About sections reveals that “WWII Tech.net is a open project” and the sections are fleshed out with the efforts of volunteers.

Nice site, nice collection.

If you really are interested in this, the Hoover Institute here at Stanford has a great archive of propoganda posters from WW1 and WW2. I believe they are in the process or have already digitized all of them for scholarly research.
