The University Club sailor.

by William M. Foley
(South Kingstown, Rhode Island)

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
Rockwell directing.

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?
