C .C. Beall Biography

Cecil Calvert Beall

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.
