Poster of a tattered US flag and black smoke commemorating Pearl Harbor

Object | Accession Number: 1988.42.19

Poster commemorating the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, issued by the Office of War Information to inspire the resolve of the American public. The need to manage the war on the Home Front led to the establishment of the OWI in June 1942. This office controlled the design and distribution of war information to the American public and commissioned work from leading artists. The OWI’s goal was to place posters in the street windows of every store, office, and restaurant across the US. The posters would be exchanged for new ones every two weeks.
