Steel Horizons, published by Allegheny Ludlum Steel Corporation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, promoted the use of steel in various industrial applications. The July issue featured four pages of poster designs that carried patriotic messages like “Remember Pearl Harbor” and “More Production.” The article discussed the important role of incentive posters in the workplace. Both magazines and posters worked to build morale, increase production, encourage recycling, and sell war bonds.

This issue also included a portrait of General Douglas MacArthur, suitable for framing, after an oil painting by Jack Moranz.
