Grieving parents have just learned the terrible fate of their son due to “Careless Talk”. They look out to the viewer, as a haunting reminder to be careful when talking about the war or pertinent information regarding war related material from the factories. This poster entitled, Americans Suffer When Careless Talk Kills, was created by Harry Anderson in 1943.
During the Second World War, there was a constant concern in the United States about inappropriate information being overheard by enemy agents both domestically and abroad.
Harry Anderson (1906-1996) entered the world of illustration in the early 1930's doing work for local New York magazines. By 1937 he was involved in designing national advertising campaigns as well as paintings for all the major popular magazines of the time. Anderson is best remembered for his series of Christian paintings commissioned by the Latter Day Saints movement. Nearly 300 paintings saw heavy reproduction as church decorations and advertising material. In 1994, he was inducted into the Society of Illustrators' Hall of Fame.
