American World War II public information poster, 28" x 20", a "Warning from the FBI" in bold black text on a deep red field. It reads, in full: "The war against spies and saboteurs demands the aid of every American. When you see evidence of sabotage, notify the Federal Bureau of Investigation at once. When you suspect the presence of enemy agents, tell it to the FBI. Beware of those who spread enemy propaganda! Don't repeat vicious rumors or vicious whispers. Tell it to the FBI!" It concludes with the bold facsimile signature of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, and instructs readers to locate the nearest FBI office in their telephone directory. A publishing line at bottom indicates that it was released by the Division of Public Inquiries of the Office of War Information, and was printed by the Government Printing Office in 1943. Backed with archival linen, shows original mailing folds and slight toning, else very good.
