1918

Description

“See Him Through” was one of many posters issued during World War I to encourage support of the war. This poster was commissioned by the National Catholic War Council in 1918 for the United War Work Campaign that ran from November 11 – 18 in 1918. During WWI, many Protestant Americans saw American Catholics as a “foreign body” . In response, American Catholics saw public support of the war as a way of gaining power and influence. The poster was designed by the American artist Burton Rice. The poster was created and reproduced as a lithograph at the time of it’s distribution.
