    World War I Propaganda (U.S. Employment Office, c. 1918). Recruitment Poster (20.5" X 30") "Stenographers! Washington Needs You," Roy Hull Still Artwork.
    In the shadow of the U.S. Capitol building, a soldier shares the stage with a stenographer, both essential cogs in the war effort. This lovely stone litho image was a call for women to apply. The United States needed more than soldiers to fight the war, issuing repeated calls for secretaries and stenographers. The war at this time claimed a shortage of 5,000 stenographers and offered a yearly salary of $1,100. Nearly sixty years after the war ended, the female stenographers who worked with the American Expeditionary Forces in France were granted veteran status by a 1977 act of Congress. Featuring artwork by Roy Hull Still, this incredible stone litho poster has received light touchup to edge wear, minor tears, and a few small chips. There are a couple of very minor stains still visible. Very Fine- on Linen.
