Any ideas which Advertising Agency produced this 1965 advertisement for the Radio Free Europe fund raising campaign?
Above: This 1965 magazine advertisement shows a photograph of barbed wire with the rhetorical question: "How do you get the truth through?" The answer in the advertisement body text is:
The Iron Curtain isn't soundproof ... Radio Free Europe is a bridge between two blocks: the captive and the free. Most important: Radio Free Europe -- because it exists and continues to exist -- helps millions hold onto the will for freedom and the drive for freedom ... Whatever you can contribute will mean a great deal to a good many people behind the Iron Curtain.Below: Another version using the main headline; "The Iron Curtain Isn't Soundproof"
Below: "The Iron Curtain Isn't Soundproof" themed poster for bus or subway sign.
Below: Another great fund-raising advertising poster for the RFE's "Crusade For Freedom"campaign... presumably by the same advertising agency?
As RFE was a CIA backed operation did the CIA employ a specific advertising agency to handle of its advertising/PR campaigns during the Cold War period?
Any information will be very welcome and appreciated
Update = = = =
"The voluntarist and privately operated Advertising Council, for example, cooperated with the government in several Cold War campaigns promoting civil defense, the “ground observer corps,” and the Crusade for Freedom, a funding drive to support the CIA-orchestrated broadcasts of Radio Free Europe."and...
"The Advertising Council financed a multimillion-dollar advertising campaign asking Americans to “help truth fight Communism” by donating “freedom dollars” to the Crusade. Appeals from celebrities were heard on the radio, posters were plastered on buses and subways, and parades were organized stressing the theme of freedom for the satellite peoples."

Now just need to find out who else made up the Advertising Council; J. Walter Thompson & Co. (JWT) and Benton and Bowles were two memeber ad. agencies.
