Adolph Treidler (1886–1981) was an artist known for his illustrations, posters, commercial art, and wartime propaganda posters.
His magazine covers and advertisement work appeared in McClure’s, Harper’s, the Saturday Evening Post, Collier’s, Century, Scribner’s, and the Woman’s Home Companion. He created ads for the Pierce Arrow automobile and for the French Line. His 1930s advertising work for the Bermuda Board of Trade was instrumental in promoting tourism in Bermuda.
His wartime propaganda posters in World War I portrayed women workers in munitions plants for the United War Work Campaign and also created wartime propaganda posters in World War II.
