Arlington and Rockwell: A enduring relationship

James "Buddy" Edgerton strikes the pose he held for Norman Rockwell in 1964 for a painting for a Scout calendar during a reunion of the artist's Arlington models on Saturday, July 7. ARLINGTON - There were two 75th anniversaries being celebrated at Arlington Memorial High School on Saturday - one, marking former Arlington resident Norman Rockwell's Four Freedoms paintings, and another tying back to the farmer who stood in opposition at the town meeting that helped inspire Rockwell's best-known work. The occasion was a reunion of Rockwell's Arlington models, which drew a standing room-only crowd to the Mack Performing Arts Center at AMHS on Saturday.
