Franklin D. Roosevelt And Harry S. Truman 1944 Election Jugate Campaign Poster:
Up for sale is this poster promoting Franklin Roosevelt for president and Harry Truman for vice president, 1944. This is a bold jugate campaign poster for the wartime Democratic ticket. Due to paper rationing, a very lightweight paper was used, making examples in good condition hard to come by.
This one is in good condition, with a couple small edge tears and minor creasing – better than most.
During the depths of World War II, the U.S. held its first, mid-war Presidential election since the 1864. Times were hard, with a scarcity of material, so there are few posters and even fewer jugates, which is what makes this particular poster so popular. The poster measures 11” x 14.75" and has the victorious democratic candidates, Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman, with etchings done by Leon Perskie, who was an official White House photographer for FDR, Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon Johnson.
Good luck, and please message me with any questions.
