Historical Echoes: Pop Culture Sold Savings Bonds
This article, published yesterday, was written by Megan Cohen a research librarian in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's Research and Statistics Group. The article reflects on the use of icons such as Lucille Ball to sell U.S. savings bonds. "Unfortunately for pop culture aficionados" Cohen writes, "big-name promotions for U.S. savings bonds died down in more recent decades." U.S. savings bonds are no longer available at your bank as they were prior to 2012, but they are still available for purchase online through the U.S. Treasury.
