Series 11: Poster Project Files , 1943-1963
(Box 7-8, 14; 1.6 linear feet)

This series consists of notes, reports, artwork, photographs, miscellaneous printed material, 4 scrapbooks, and individual product files that document the development of poster advertising projects, primarily those used on Railway Express Agency delivery trucks that would circulate the poster advertisements throughout urban areas. Individual product files typically contain photographs, notes, clippings, and other printed materials. Although scrapbooks have been consecutively numbered within this series, they either focus on multiple projects or are solely associated with one project and arranged with that project. There is also a file concerning the Shopping Center Network Semaphore Poster Display that involved the placement of hanging posters on light poles in shopping center parking lots.
Poster project files are on reels 5845-5846.
