C. C. (Cecil Calvert) BEALL, 1892-1967 The 7th war bond was painted by C.C. Beall. This war bond raised more than 156 billion dollars to help end WWII. It was featured throughout Clint Eastwood's film, "Flags of our Fathers". He was born in Saratoga, Wyoming, studied in New York at the Pratt Institute and Art Students League with George Bridgman. His early work was in a "bold poster style in watercolor marked by a strong pattern of light and shadow, which was favored by a number of illustrators" of the Collier's magazine 'school'. During World War II, Beall continued to produce a popular series of Collier's cover illustrations depicting decorated World War II heroes, in addition to contributing war-related reportage. At the end of the war, he was one of the invited few aboard the U.S.S. Missouri to record the Japanese surrender ceremony. President Harry Truman chose Beall's painting as the official painting of the event.
