Additional information

Posters produced by the Wartime Information Board on a variety of subjects, including recruitment, propaganda, Victory Loans, production, etc. Included are poster campaigns on behalf of the War Finance Committee, National Defence, and other government departments. The Director of Public Information also transferred copies of British and other Allied posters with the WIB material.

This collection has been assigned an arbitrary restrospective accession number of 1983-30. The Wartime Information Board did assign specific numbers to each poster series, which usually appears as WIB-1, WIB-2, etc. However, the collection is not organized to any extent.

An effort has been made to indicate when most of the posters were transferred by listing the entries from the Division of Prints and Drawings Memoranda Book from 1927-1945. This is unfortunately very incomplete.

The posters in this collection were probably received from a large number of sources, but the majority were produced by the Wartime Information Board under the auspices of John Grierson. These posters were produced under the supervision of Albert Cloutier, John Grierson, and Harry Mayerovitch.
