America's World War I poster output was spearheaded by the Department of Pictorial Publicity. Formed in 1917, shortly after America entered the war, the group was composed of members of the Society of Illustrators and was led by Charles Dana Gibson, the man who created the eponymous, ubiquitous American sweetheart, the Gibson Girl. The division, which was composed of America's most prominent illustrators, artists and cartoonists, donated their services to the war effort. Gibson himself designed only a handful of posters; this one was taken from an illustration he created for Life magazine. Not in Rawls.
