Creation Date



One of 22 protest posters created by students at Columbia College Chicago who called themselves the "Columbia Collective". They were produced in 1970 as reaction to United States actions at Kent State and the conflicts in Cambodia and Vietnam; some were exhibited in a Chicago, Illinois exhibit, Student Strike Posters. Image text reads "Save the people/Save the children/Save the country....NOW! / McGovern '72" with a graphic of two figures in profile and two doves between them. The 1972 United States presidential election was between Republican Richard Nixon and Democrat George McGovern. McGovern opposed the United States involvement in Vietnam and as Senator, worked to end it legislatively. White background and blue ink.
