Description

This is a reprint of a poster created for the first National Social Hygiene Day in 1937. It features a knight representing the "nation-wide fight on venereal diseases" attacking the monster of syphilis with a lance of "medical science and education. The syphilis monster resides in a cave labeled "mankind's ancient secretiveness adn false modesty." 

"One Newspaper's Contribution to Public Education on the Campaign Against Syphilis : A new story, an editorial and a cartoon in one issue. Other social hygiene features frequently appear in this publication, which is one of several hundred cooperating in the national campaign."
