1968 Anti-Tobacco

On January 11, 1964, Luther L. Terry, M.D., Surgeon General of the U.S. Public Health Service, released the first report of the Surgeon General's Advisory Committee on Smoking and Health. 

The release of the report was the first in a series of steps, still being taken more than 50 years later, to diminish the impact of tobacco use on the health of the American people.

These were national anti-tobacco posters done by Nolan Duffy and White in 1968 as part of a US Department of Health campaign targeted to elementary school kids.

The posters appeared in cafeterias of every participating school district in the country. DOH was the precursor to HHS. Illustrations for the work were Jim White’s, founder of White64. 


Thousands of lives saved each year.
