    World War I Propaganda (U.S. Food Administration, 1910s). World War I Poster (20" X 30") "Food Will Win the War." Sidney Reisenberg Artwork. War.
    When President Woodrow Wilson appointed Herbert Hoover as head of the Food Administration; Hoover designed an effort that would appeal to the American sense of volunteerism and avoid coercion. Many posters were produced advertising patriotism and asking for sacrifices that would increase production and decrease the amount of food consumption on the home front. Hoover and his administration proclaimed that "Food Will Win the War." This poster was aimed at conserving wheat; America at the time was producing a fourth of the world's wheat. This poster features the majestic Statue of Liberty in front of a red, white and blue rainbow with new immigrants ready to step off the boat. An unrestored poster with good color and an overall presentable appearance. It shows general signs of use including, edge wear, some creases, and small tears around the border. There is a small amount of archival tape on the verso. Please see full-color, enlargeable image above for more details. Rolled, Very Fine-.
