US Food Administration Poster Art (16 of 41 Posters)

During the United States participation in World War I the U. S. Food Administration was the responsible agency for the administration of the Allies’ food reserves. One of the Board’s important tasks was the stabilization of the price of wheat on the U. S. market. It was established by Executive Order 2679-A of August 10, 1917 pursuant to the Food and Fuel Control Act.

We have used the book, “World War I Posters” by Gary A. Borkan to identify and catalogue many of the posters in the Hunter Collection. The ID is the page number in the book, while each letter represents the position (from left to right) on a given page in the book. Poster IDs with letters G or greater are not found in the Borkan book.
