The University Club sailor.

I am the subject sailor in Norman Rockwell's Saturday Evening Post
cover. The photo shoot was done at a studio on Madison Ave. NYC. with Norman
At that time I was a Marine stationed out of NAS
Brooklyn (Floyd Bennet Field) Marine Detachment. John Harkrider modeling agency found me and the rest is history. A wonderful experience.
The framed cover will hang in my home for the rest of my life and my children will love to inherit it.
Keith: What a great story!
Can you share any stories about Mr Rockwell and your experience as a model for him?
