Defense bonds and stamps were frequently sold on campus. This photo and others were taken for publicity purposes in order to promote the stamps and bonds. Usually the students in the photos were from the same cities or regions and the photos would be sent to newspapers in that area promoting both the bonds and the college.(70) This photo accompanied a Holyoke Transcript Telegram article on April 4, 1942, entitled "Students Design Posters to Help Defense Bond Sales."
