By getting a first-hand look at more than 60 posters in pristine condition, they documented 43 posters that haven’t been catalogued by the federal government! We are excited to add these new gems to the ever-growing Living Archive.
We’d like to thank Mary Lou Eichhorn for assisting us at the Collection. She spent the extra effort to help surface these and joined in our delight when we told her the news. What they thought was a “handful” of posters, turned out to be a real treasure of predominantly War & Defense subject pieces – mostly related to the New Orleans area. Thanks, Mary Lou, we couldn’t have done it without you!
We hope to drum up the resources to have these posters scanned so we can share their images with the American public through the Archive. In the meantime, we’ll be inputting the data so their existence will be on record.
Stay tuned! Get on our e-mail list of follow us on Facebook.
