This vintage original WWII poster was issued by the Office of War Information as OWI Poster No. 75 in 1943. This poster quotes statements made by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 3, 1943 concerning Americanism and racial and ethnic harmony in the United States. Four different quotes are cited with the most moving highlighted in red at the center of the poster – “Americanism is not, and never was, a matter of race or ancestry.” A large engraved vignette of an American Eagle at the top adds gravity to the poster’s message.
This vintage original poster is folded as issued and looks unused with no tape or pinholes and only light handling wear and modest toning from age. Overall condition is excellent. This poster ships folded as issued.
