Curated by Susan Wheeler, this small exhibit reminds us of the impact of the war on non-combatants and the importance of attending to the emotional needs of soldiers.  The selections advertise relief organizations and services soliciting funds and materials.  World War l posters are well known for their beauty and effectiveness. These posters helped to raise over a hundred million dollars in relief funds and ten million library books.  This exhibition is on view in the hallway from January 25 to April 25.
