DESIGNER UNKNOWN
Make America the Arsenal of Democracy. Color silkscreen poster printed on card. 356x559mm, 14x22 inches. Pennsylvania Art Program [WPA], Circa 1941. Using a quotation from President Franklin Roosevelt's radio fireside chat from December 29th, 1940, Governor of Pennsylvania Arthur Horace James (1939-1943) repurposed the phrase to call for donations to increase his state's prominence in the arms and munitions manufacturing and the national war effort as a whole. Overall, Pennsylvania played an unparalleled role in war production, putting out enormous amounts of steel, concrete, weapons, aircraft, ships, vehicles and more.
