'Lumber Is a Critical Material in Our Whole War Program' [poster]

Lumber and Timber Products War Committee, [n.d. but 1942-1945]. Poster. Item #61045
ISBN: 281AIB0134816

Roughly 21.25 by 28.25 inches. Offset lithograph printed in red and blue. The poster attributes the title quote to Donald Nelson, the chairman of the War Production Board. The legend at the bottom of the poster reads, 'Give him a hand...Boost production. Let's go now!' As the publisher was a lobbying arm of the National Lumber Manufacturers Association (now the National Forest Products Association) and the main image is a heroic portrait of Nelson, the real purpose of this poster seems to be currying favor with the War Production Board and not encouraging lumberjacks to work harder. Mounted on linen and virtually flawless.
