Recruiting & Publicity Branch, U.S. Army, Washington DC 1945 - Recruiting poster, dated January, 1945, for the medical section of the Women's Army Corps (WACs). The illustration, excellent but unattributed, depicts a svelte Army nurse in a sharply pleated (and rather fetching) blue uniform - shades of Madison Avenue and the Fifties fashion revolution to come. The WACs provided an important point of entry for women into the post-war professional workforce, expanding their roles beyond traditional palliative nursing duties; the current poster is particularly interesting for its promise of providing skilled technical training in the areas of medical and surgical technology. Original lithographed poster, 38"x25". Printed in colors on heavy white poster-stock. Mild creasing along bottom margin (well away from image), else a fresh, unworn example, Near Fine / A-. Unbacked.
