The Demise of German-Iowan Newspapers during World War I
Prior to World War I, Iowa had some 40 thriving German newspapers. By 1926, all but four had ceased publication. Anti-German sentiment during the war caused the majority of these papers to either switch to English or close operations entirely. Prof. Ehrstine's talk will document the decline of the German-Iowan press between 1915 and 1925, drawing upon the extensive collection of German-Iowan newspapers held by the State Historical Society of Iowa.
Director of Galleries and Collections
World War I ushered in many changes for the United States. Among them was the government's use of propaganda. Numerous artists volunteered their talents "over here" while others went "over there." Each of them contributed to the war effort, most notably by producing propaganda that was meant to spark patriotism, encourage conservation of resources, or stimulate the economy. The War Department even commissioned its first official combat artists, recognizing that art had the ability to document as well as persuade. Indeed, the Great War served as a catalyst for a creative revolution, one where the visual arts played an integral part.
$10 per person for sandwich, side, cookie.
