Edward Bernays is second from right

1918
WAR DEPARTMENT

Bernays joins the War Department's Committee on Public Information,the propaganda arm of the U.S. effort, and following armistice, participates in a controversial press mission to the Peace Conference. He later conducts a highly successful campaign to promote re-employment of returning veterans. His effective use of publicity and the enlistment of civic groups earns high praise from his superiors and the thanks of countless ex-servicemen.
