Killer item. Vintage 9" square paper sign "Urging every American to Attend the Sensational Lecture - How to Stop Communism". These are one of the most amazing items we have ever found. They came out of storage in Lancaster, PA. There were four programs, a couple of bizarre publicity brochures that they called public relations manuals and a group of these signs. From what it says in the manual, these signs were made for a lecture on How to Stop Communism that was given at the McCaskey High School Auditorium on February 25, 1951. The signs say "Attend this Lecture Learn Shocking Facts" "Know our Enemy Learn Their Tricks" etc. These lectures were made during the period of McCarthyism when many thousands of Americans were accused of being Communists or communist sympathizers and became the subject of aggressive investigations and questioning before government or private-industry panels, committees and agencies. The primary targets of such suspicions were government employees, those in the entertainment industry, educators and union activists. Suspicions were often given credence despite inconclusive or questionable evidence, and the level of threat posed by a person's real or supposed leftist associations or beliefs was often greatly exaggerated. Many people suffered loss of employment, destruction of their careers, and even imprisonment. The "Manual" (not for sale) I found with these signs tells all about how to figure out who was a communist, and confirms these lectures were part of the McCarthyism Communist panic. Note that they do show some very minor aging or edge roughness that can be trimmed. FREE SHIPPING TO USA
