Historical Note

World War I is often referred to as the “Great War.” Its European origins with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in 1914 quickly escalated into an international conflict among 32 countries that continued until November 11, 1918 and took the lives of an estimated 16 million combatants and civilians. Mobilization for over 70 million military personnel worldwide was an enormous undertaking that involved considerable cooperation and participation among civilian home fronts. The United States did not join their allies of Britain and France until 1917.

A considerable amount of mass media or propaganda was created to inform the public of events and to influence their opinions and participation. In the U.S., President Woodrow Wilson implemented the Committee on Public Information that encompassed numerous governmental divisions as well as the Army and Navy. These agencies produced advertisements, pamphlets, posters and photographs to convey their messages. In addition, private organizations, like the Red Cross and the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) who were active in the war effort created similar materials

Scope and Content

The WWI Collection brings together posters, photographs, ephemera, and etchings related to the war effort. The bulk of the collection is comprised of posters created in the U.S. between 1914 and 1921, but includes posters from Britain, Canada and France.

Arrangement/Series Description

Series 1: Posters

The posters are representative of government agencies or cooperating organizations such as the Red Cross or the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA). These range from recruitment calls from the various branches of the military to home front initiatives by the U.S. Food Administration, the National War Garden Commission and the U.S. Department of the Treasury. A considerable number of posters were created by renowned artists such as James Montgomery Flagg, Howard Chandler Christy, James Daugherty and Sydney H. Riesenberg. Unless specifically noted, the posters were produced between the years 1914-1919.

The posters are arranged alphabetically by title within their corresponding nation of origin: Canada, France, Great Britain or United States. When known, the name of the agency that produced or sponsored the work is listed in the third column.

Series 2: Artifacts and Ephemera

This series brings together a range of decals, flags, handbills, pamphlets, postcards, smaller posters and war stamps that were issued during the war.

The materials are arranged alphabetically by title.

Series 3: Photographs, Glass Plate Slides

The 32 glass plate slides in this collection focus on activities in France. Eight of the slides show the destruction of the Arras region of France located about six miles from the front and nine slides show the operations of the YMCA stationed in France to attend to the spiritual, physical, and mental health of soldiers.

The materials are arranged alphabetically by slide name.

Series 4: Photographs, Mole & Thomas

Arthur Samuel Mole (1889-1983) and his colleague, John D. Thomas, created the “living photographs” where tens of thousands of soldiers, reservists and other members of the military were arranged to form patriotic compositions shot with an 11 x 14-inch view camera from the top of an 80-foot viewing tower at various U.S. military camps and bases. This series contains 12 silver gelatin photographs.

The photographs are arranged alphabetically by title.

Series 5: Lester George Hornby Etchings

Lester George Hornby (1882-1956) was an American painter and printmaker. During World War I, Hornby followed French forces into the trenches and later obtained permission to follow the American forces in France. During this time, he created a series of etchings drawn from life.

The prints are arranged alphabetically by title.
