Norman Rockwell models to reunite in Vermont town

Posted: Updated:

ARLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - People who modeled for artist Norman Rockwell decades ago in the Vermont town of Arlington are getting together for a reunion this weekend.

More than 200 people were used as models in the Arlington area where Rockwell lived from 1939 to 1953.

More than a dozen of them are meeting Saturday at the Norman Rockwell Exhibition in Arlington to catch up and share stories about Rockwell, whose paintings and illustrations graced more than 300 covers of The Saturday Evening Post.

Mary Hall told the Bennington Banner she modeled for Rockwell as a child four times, first as a victim being saved by a boy scout from a flood, then as "Little Lord Fauntleroy."

She said Rockwell was a humble man who made the models feel relaxed.
