Mallory’s Radio

Mechanically-inclined Sergeant Mallory was the pride of his hometown of Woodsville, Maine. The tiny coastal village loved and supported its sons who were called to serve overseas in the Second World War. Sheriff Pillsbury invited a traveling government surveyor to spend a night in the Mallory family home, and showed off the two-way radio that had been Mallory’s prewar obsession and industry. When the surveyor insisted
the radio was a security threat to the United States’ East Coast and had to be destroyed,
Pillsbury was tasked to break the news to Mr. and Mrs. Mallory.

About Ara Hagopian's The LITERATE Show

For over thirty years, I have enjoyed drawing beautiful shapes and writing complementary stories. The imagery tends to focus on our place in the world—whomever or whatever we may be. I am influenced by Twentieth Century history—I read vintage magazines, books and letters. Inspiration comes from visualizing human achievement and personal interaction—derived from people, places and things which may be obscure, but never insignificant. My pen-and-ink THE MAGNIFICENT RECOVERY was selected by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for their 2008 summer art auction.
