ENLISTING A NATION
The Art of Persuasion in World War I Posters

ww I

The Nahant Historical Society is pleased to offer its new summer exhibition of World War I posters and artifacts. Nahanter W. Donnison Hodges collected almost all the posters as a teenager during World War I. His son, W. Donnison Hodges, Jr. gave them to the Society in 2002. This graphically powerful exhibit will commence with a reception on Sunday July 18, 2004 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Serenity Room at the Nahant Community Center at 41 Valley Road. Members, please watch the mail for your invitation. New members and friends are welcome. Exhibit hours will then start Wednesday, July 21st through the first Sunday in December (December 5th). Admittance is free but voluntary donations will be gladly accepted.

This exhibition has been co-curated by both Society staff and Tufts Museum Studies Program Exhibition Planning 2004 class. Led by their adjunct professor, Nahanter Kenneth C. Turino, the students have spent this past winter and spring preparing this exhibition. Mr. Turino is also Director of Exhibitions with Historic New England. Prior to the summer engagement in Nahant the exhibition ran for three weeks in May at the Tufts University Gallery where it received excellent reviews.
