Creater of the 7th War Loan.   Now... All Together.   Concerned that bond sales might dwindle after the defeat of Germany, officials commissioned illustrator C. C. Beale to create a poster for the seventh War Loan subscription to boost bond sales.   This 1945 poster - based on the iconic photograph of soliders raising the U. S. Flag on Iwo Jima - did just that, and campaign sales soared.
