Today's featured picture

William Allen Rogers

This picture shows a United States Navy recruitment poster from 1917, based on a cartoon by William Allen Rogers (1854–1931) published in the New York Herald during World War I. It shows a personified Germany wading through a sea of dead bodies, with the slogan "Only the Navy Can Stop This" below the drawing, presumably a reference to the U-boat campaign and the sinking of civilian ships such as the Lusitania.

Rogers was a self-taught artist and began submitting political cartoons to Midwestern newspapers during his teens. He was employed for twenty-five years by Harper's Weekly to illustrate the magazine's editorials; this was followed by daily contributions of political cartoons to the New York Herald for twenty years.
