Additional Information: 

Pabst Breweries joined in the trend of selling war bonds during WWll with its own public relations and advertising campaigns. One such Pabst sponsored contest awarded a total of $50,000 in bonds. The winning entries were to ‘develop and assemble practical and workable plans and ideas’ for the eminent post-war employment of returning American servicemen and women. A popular tack for businesses during WWll, kiosks popped up to sell bonds wherever people would gather. Celebrity and media support for war bond drives became a competition of sorts to see who could sell the most.
