Eli Paul talked about the role in which marketing techniques-specifically printed posters-were used in shaping public opinion about the American involvement in World War I. The program was held at the exhibit “The Winds and Words of War: Posters and Prints from the San Antonio Public Library Collection,” an exhibit of 40 framed original posters from World War I on display at the Central Library in Kansas City. He also talked about the posters at the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial. Topics included the role of George Creel, from Kansas City, who, as the head of the U.S. Committee on Public Information, was a proponent of the poster as a propaganda tool. Mr. Paul responded to questions from members of the audience.
“Eli Paul: Art and Advertising as Tools of War” was held at 6:30 p.m. CT at the Kansas City Public Library. close
