    Acquisition Information

    Many of the items in the World War I Poster Collection were acquired during World War I as part of Oregon Agricultural College's government document retention program and were housed in the Oregon State University Library maps collection with other war posters. In 1995, war posters housed by the Library were transferred to the University Archives. Shortly thereafter (in 1996), a small number of war posters that had been transferred from the Library to the Horner Museum in 1979 were also acquired by the University Archives. These two accessions comprised the University Archives' War Poster Collection. The World War I posters were separated in 2014 to form the World War I Poster Collection, which now resides in Oregon State University's Special Collections & Archives Research Center.
