GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER (1945) WWII savings bond poster


George Washington Carver savings bond poster. Np: US Treasury, 1945. Vintage original 26 x 18″ (66 x 46 cm.) poster, folded (as issued), with some small marginal tears mended with archival paper, very good+.

Poster designed by Kautz commemorating African American agricultural scientist and inventor George Washington Carver, who had died only two years earlier. Although the US government issued many posters during the war to promote purchase of US savings bonds, it is highly unusual to see one like this, which promotes the achievements of an African American.
