Content Roundup – Fourth Week – August 2018

Poster, “Hey fellows!” : your money brings the book we need when we want it : American Library Association, United War Work Campaign, week of November 11, 1918

Newly digitized this week are a number of story paper issues as well as a poster recently acquired for the upcoming fall exhibit “Now far from home”: ending of the Great War and the war in Popular imagination and culture.

This iconic 1918 American Library Association, United War Work Campaign poster promoted reading and books for the United States military. The poster, designed by noted magazine illustrator John Emmet Sheridan (1877–1948) shows a soldier holding up a book and calling out, “Hey fellows!”, with a sailor sitting on the ground at his feet, reading. The soldier seems to be issuing a general call to both his fellow servicemen to come get books, as well as to his fellow countrymen to contribute funds to make books available for those in the armed forces. The fundraising color lithograph was commissioned by the Committee on Public Information, Division of Pictorial Publicity of the American Library Association. Ironically, the poster is dated “Week of November 11, 1918”; that very day, the hostilities of the First World War ceased when an Armistice was declared.
