Biographical Note

American educator and writer Neala Schleuning (also published as Neala Janis Schleuning Yount) received her Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Minnesota in 1978 with a dissertation on the life and work of Meridel Le Sueur, a well-known and respected Midwestern writer of the political left. Schleuning was personally associated with Le Sueur, collaboratingwith her and the Twin Cities Women’s Film Collective on a film about Le Sueur’s writing, My People Are My Home (1976). Schleuning taught American history, Women’s Studies, and American Studies, and was involved in higher education administration. She was director of the women’s center at Mankato State University (now known as Minnesota State University, Mankato), and assistant director of the Illinois Board of Higher Education. A Fulbright Scholar, she is the author of several books, including America: Song We Sang Without Knowing (1983); Idle Hands and Empty Hearts: Work and Freedom in the United States (1990); Women, Community, and the Hormel Strike of 1985-86 (1994); and To Have and to Hold: the Meaning of Ownership in the United States (1997).


Scope and Content Note

The Neala Schleuning Poster Collection includes a wide variety of posters, broadsides, and several menus collected by Schleuning in the course of her worldwide travels. The poster collection is a strong graphic collection reflecting her broad interests in women’s issues, American studies, and political movements. The 161 items (151 unique items and ten duplicates) span approximately twenty years, with items dating from the 1970s through the 1990s. Some early posters represent social and political issues of the 1970s, such as the Women’s Liberation Movement and Nuclear Disarmament. A large number of broadsides advertise cultural events, such as plays, gallery openings, and Native American gatherings, many of which occurred in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, where Schleuning lived. Through the 1980s and 1990s, posters display ongoing social and political concerns such as labor relations, health reform, and homelessness.

The collection is arranged in two broad geographic series, posters from domestic American events (61 items) or those obtained from travels abroad (100 items). Series I. United States is arranged in topical subseries: Anarchist Gatherings, Anti-Nuclear Campaign, Cultural Events, Gay/Lesbian Issues, Labor Relations/Worker’s Rights, Native American Issues, and Women & Work (Women’s Liberation). The posters and broadsides represent various events that were held across the United States, including items from events honoring American icons Karen Silkwood and Leonard Peltier.

Series II. International includes posters and broadsides from nations around the world, from Africa to Central America to Asia. The Schleuning Collection contains a series of Russian posters honoring Soviet leader Vladimir Ill’ich Lenin and another series of Soviet propaganda posters, as well as two fine silkscreen posters from Sri Lanka. The collection also contains an impressive array of posters from two United Nations World Conferences on Women, held in Nairobi, Kenya (1985), and Beijing, China (1995), respectively. The two menus in the collection are placemat menus from McDonald’s restaurants in Russia and China.

Just as the items in this collection cover a broad range of topics and geographic locals, the artwork ranges from simple sketches to fine illustrations to photography; production methods range from limited silkscreen or letterpress to mass commercial printings. Likewise, paper quality of the posters varies from the type of cheap flyer one might see posted on a bulletin board to high-gloss, photo-quality sheets. The collection provides a good international overview for study of graphic design and the poster art of political statement.

The item list of posters provides the following descriptive details: poster title/slogan/primary text from graphics on the poster, location of event or place of publication, date (when known), poster size (in inches), color production, and format (broadside or poster). Additional details, such as multiple copies or artist, are provided as available.

Many of the posters contain text in languages other than English; translations are provided for most of these. Graphic descriptions have been provided for image posters without text. The posters are housed in flat files; oversize items have been identified with removal sheets and are housed separately.
