Norman Rockwell and the African American Trail Guide

Norman Rockwell, the iconic American painter, is a local figure round here. In one of his paintings, Norman Rockwell’s “The Golden Rule”, which can be seen on the page linked here, had local people as models. Two of the models in this painting are the children of Elaine Gunn, with whom David has been working on the African American Trail Guide to the Berkshires. This book captures the stories of an amazing array of people who have been part of this community, and I’m sure we’ll see it widely read and used. It’ll be available in September.

  1. The model for the Rabbi in Golden Rule was my great uncle, Will Lawless. He was a lifelong resident of Stockbridge.
