World War II Posters is a collection of 245 original posters from WWII related to savings and investment, productivity and invention, service and support, environmentalism and conservation, security and trust, freedom and sacrifice, friends and allies, health and safety, and victory gardens. The federal government produced and distributed informational materials to attract and encourage public support for the money, material resources, labor, and personal sacrifices needed to mount a successful war effort. The Office of War Information distributed posters on a national scale to post offices, schools, and railroad stations. Defense Councils in each community were instructed to form a committee to regularly receive posters. The committee determined the number needed by the community, selected posting locations, and set up a route and distribution system. New posters were distributed at the beginning of each month.
