    World War I Propaganda (Emergency Aid of Pennsylvania, Overseas Committee, c. 1917). Fine/Very Fine. Poster (12" X 20.5") "Send 'Em a Smoke, Send 'Em a Sweet," Mabel Halsey Woodrow Artwork.
    Established in 1914, the Emergency Aid of Pennsylvania Foundation started out sending clothes, money, and supplies to Belgium before the United States entered World War I. Once the U.S. joined the conflict, the Emergency Aid Foundation had grown to consist of committees dedicated to each country in the Allied forces, as well as committees dedicated specifically to the U.S. forces and their families. Appointed by the Governor of Pennsylvania, the Overseas Committee sent supplies and comforts to Pennsylvanian men fighting in the war. Signs of handling include slight edge wear, pinholes in the corners, surface scuffs and scratches, as well as a vertical crease. There is also a hole punch below the top border, as well as a few pieces of linen and paper tape on the verso. Some of the apparent scuffs in the background are printing irregularities from production. Fine/Very Fine.
