Savings Bond

1942 - 1980

Overview

The Savings (or War) Bonds campaign was not only the organization's first campaign, but also its most successful campaign to date. Begun in 1942 by the then War Advertising Council, the campaign encouraged Americans to support the war effort by purchasing war bonds. By the time the campaign ended 38 years later, millions of Americans had purchased $35 billion in War/Savings Bonds.
