Earlier this month, Margie Stewart passed away this May at the age of 92. Margie was a very different kind of pin-up girl. She was not scantily clad. Her serious and articulate “letters” that appeared alongside her image were about managing money. But her persona as a young wife on the homefront pining for her solder husband was a big hit with the young men fighting overseas during World War II. “Margie” was created to encourage soldiers to manage their pay. Her letters informed soldiers about personal transfer accounts, Class E allotments of pay, War Bonds, and National Service Life insurance. The posters were distributed in posts, commands, and theaters of operation. They are now a part of the holdings of the National Archives and can be found in Record Group 44. Margie poster: Letters to soldiers concerning soldiers deposits, Personal transfer account, Class E allotments of pay, War Bonds, National Service Life insurance", 1941 - 1945 (ARC 514982)
