Postcard from Robert Gallagher to Mrs. Robert Gallagher

Postcard from Robert Gallagher to Mrs. Robert Gallagher
Creator: Gallagher, Robert D
Date: May 12, 1943
Robert Gallagher, a U.S. Army soldier on active duty at Camp Robinson, Arkansas, sent this postcard to his wife in Leavenworth, Kansas during World War II. On the front of the postcard, a dark-skinned girl holds a bouquet of flowers, smiles, and waves. Illustrated with kinky pigtails and exaggerated features the girl is placed below the text, "Just a little 'local color' to cheer you up!" This is a stereotyped portrayal of an African American child as a picaninny, in the tradition of Topsy from Uncle Tom's Cabin and Farina from Our Gang, or the Little Rascals. The everyday nature of Gallagher's note on the back of the postcard--he does not refer the illustration on the front, but comments on the weather, promises to write more, and asks if his wife and baby are well--underscores just how common racist images of black Americans were in the 20th century.
