Original poster mounted on linen. Page measures 30" x 20 1/4"

This World War I poster is part of a series published by the United War Work Campaign, or UWWC, a coalition of seven service organizations charged with raising $170,000,000 to help demobilize the army and maintain morale in the final few years of the war. The campaign was a success, and was at the time recognized as the largest fundraising event in history. The War Camp Community Service was one of two secular organizations in the campaign. Their work was largely focused on the social and recreational needs of enlisted men in homefront training camps. This poster features the organization's emblem, with an illustration of servicemen sharing a home cooked meal. The caption reads 'Home Hospitality'. Poster is in good condition, with some wear to upper margin and repairs to right margin. Library notations in ink lower right.
