Puerto Rico -- 20th century
Scope and Contents:
This dramatic poster depicting a male silhouette with a chest x-ray promoted the 1964 film, "Hope," which educated communities about tuberculosis prevention and treatment. The symbol for tuberculosis placed behind the male figure, is a modified version of the cross of Lorraine, signalizing the "crusade" against tuberculosis. (From exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)
