DESCRIPTION:

“The roaring of an airplane motor is jazz music to my ears. I believe that I would rather hold an aviation post than be President of the United States.”- David “Crock” Ingalls, WWI ace pilot. At the start of the Great War, the airplane was only ten years old, and the U.S. military ranked 16th in the world, just behind Portugal. By July of 1917, General John J. Pershing requested a force of one million men. To appeal to potential recruits, a propaganda campaign was crafted by the Committee on Public Information that included recruiting posters by some of America’s top illustrators. Themes of honor, patriotism, adventure, education, and heroism filled these dramatic, call-to-action pieces.
