The Series E U.S. Savings Bonds were marketed from 1941 to 1980 by the United States as war bonds. The Fourth War Loan Drive, one of eight drives used to raise funds during World War II, lasted from January 18 to February 15, 1944. This segment of the drive targeted farmers and women. Though the initial goal of this drive was to raise $14 billion, the final sales equaled $16.7 billion.
The Kearney and Trecker company designed and manufactured the “Milwaukee” series milling machines and as members of the farming industry they may have assisted in the promotion of the drive.
