This is one of a series of poster images created for use by the United States Government during World War ll. The images all used Wood’s endearing character named Grandpop and they promoted public interest in the war effort by using his well known comedic titles. Now 70 years later , we still enjoy these images for their humor and style.
Lawson Wood, sometimes Clarence Lawson Wood, (23 August 1878 – 26 October 1957), was an English painter, illustrator and designer known for humorous depictions of cavemen and dinosaurs, policemen, and animals, especially a chimpanzee called Gran'pop, whose annuals circulated around the world. Wood was decorated by the French for his gallantry at Vimy Ridge during World War I. He was deeply concerned with animal welfare and was awarded membership in the Royal Zoological Society in 1934.
