Dear EA Jervis,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the finding aid for the record series “Peace Corps Posters, 2002-2016” (National Archives Identifier 558694) and could not find any posters listed that were clearly identified as having been made for the 10th Anniversary of the Peace Corps in 1971. It may be that some of the posters in that series were related to the 10th anniversary but were not described as such when the records were transferred to us. The series Peace Corps Personnel and Activities, 1968 - 1979 (National Archives Identifier 55868) does include photographs of winning entries in the Peace Corps' 10th Anniversary Poster Contest. For questions about either of these record series you can contact National Archives at College Park - Still Pictures (RDSS) via the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
The only relevant items we could find with the Smithsonian’s CollectionsSearchCenter is a file related to the Peace Corps Poster by David Battle that was the basis of the 1972 Peace Corps Commemorative Stamp. We know from this press release that the National Museum of American History does have some Peace Corps posters in its collections however we were unable to find any details about their holdings on their website. You can contact them via this contact form with any questions.
We searched the online catalog for the National Gallery of Art and could not find anything in their collections related to the Peace Corps We also couldn’t find a mention of a Peace Corps related exhibition in their list of past exhibitions. There contact information is here if you have any further questions about their holdings.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
