Post Office Relief – Campbell OH

Description

The post office in Campbell, Ohio houses an example of New Deal artwork: the terra cotta relief “Iron and Steel Industry” by Joseph Walter. The work, completed in 1941, was commissioned by the federal Treasury Section of Fine Arts for the then-new (and now former) post office building. It has since been relocated to Campbell’s present post office building.

    The Town Council of Dorchester, Dorset, England has been researching the German Prisoner of War memorial as part of “The Poppy Trail” . To commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day, “The Poppy Trail” provides a map, a Resources Pack and picture-boards to mark the town’s First World War memorials. The German Prisoner of War memorial in Fordington was created by two of the town’s Prisoners of War, K Bartholmay from Elberfeld and Josef Walter from Augsburg. Our research has revealed that Josef Walter emigrated to New York in 1928 and took part in the New Deal project. Your page details some of his work.
    Please let me know if you would like to receive details of our research project.
