Ken Gottry - Cambridge NY History

Norman Rockwell lived in nearby West Arlington, VT from 1939 to 1953. He often visited the Cambridge area looking for models for his paintings of American life. This presentation discusses some of our local models who found fame in a Rockwell painting and on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post

That's my parents, Ken & Charlotte Gottry, in Walking to Church that appeared on the cover of the magazine on April 4, 1953. That's also a Cambridge fire hyrdrant in the photo. You'll have to watch the presentation to get the story on that.
