Frances Adams Halsted (1874 - November 16, 1951) was an American artist. Born in Boston as Frances Adams Clark, Halsted married Edward Bayard Halsted on September 16, 1913. Halsted is best known as the designer for the famed 'Columbia Calls' U.S. Army recruiting poster published during World War I. She also wrote the poem of the same title that appeared on the poster. She founded the Frances Adams House not long after World War I, a foundation with the goal of helping young people to become better citizens and creating more friendship between nations. Halsted had a contentions divorce from her husband in 1925. Very little else is known about her life.
