During the height of the 1950s Cold War period, the American government produced a hugs amount of information/propaganda literature. Probably the most well known is the "Duck and Cover" literature and PSA, which was aimed at children. The government also produced a series of pamphlets for adults, to inform them about what to do in the event of a nuclear attack from Soviet Russia.
One such pamphlets was the wonderfully illustrated "Facts About Fallout Protection" originally from 1958. It was part of a series of specialised information pamphlets designed for mass distribution. Others included "Rural Family Defence" from 1956, and "The Family Fallout Shelter" in 1959. During the late 50s and early 1960s, the building of public and private fallout shelters intensified across America, as they prepared for what many considered an inevitable war.
