The images of America's most popular illustrator, Norman Rockwell, have been reproduced more than those of any other artist. His perfectly detailed portrayals of Americana illustrated 322 Saturday Evening Post covers, 49 Boy Scout calendars and dozens of other periodicals, children's books and advertisements. He was the master illustrator of life in America. For the first 25 years of his formidable career, his America was New Rochelle, where he lived and worked.

In an illustrated slideshow, New Rochelle’s City Historian, Barbara Davis, will discuss the great illustrator’s early years in Mamaroneck, and the two and half decades he spent in New Rochelle.
