Supporting the war by conserving office supplies, 1942

It's the little thing that count! how you can help win the war!


When the U.S. entered the war, consumer goods disappeared as factories converted to wartime production. Gasoline and rubber shortages led to the rationing of many other goods including sugar, butter, tin, and silk. Posters and booklets urged Americans to do their part to support the war effort by doing with less. In this booklet, white collar workers are advised on how they too can join in the war effort by conserving office supplies, like pencils and paperclips.
