Happy Wednesday, which means Happy Kane History story night! Many of you know of the illustrator Norman Rockwell, but do you know about his older brother Jarvis?
Tonight Denny Driscoll shares stories about both of the Rockwells and their connection to Kane.
A few pics:
What is a story from Kane’s history you would like to hear on a Wednesday during 100 Days of Kane, PA?

Would like to hear about the Red Bridge prisoner of war camp that housed German prisoners of war during WWII. Also further info on Men’s Chorus and Women’s Chorus which both entertained for a number of years.
Great ideas, Joyce! We’ll see what we can do about sharing those stories.
I am Jarvis’ Granddaughter, Peggy Rockwell Buzanski. My father was Jarvis’ eldest son, John. I really enjoyed watching this Day 55 video. One more thing about my Uncle Richard. He was the cartoonist for Milt Caniff and he did all the illustrations for Steve Canyon during the 40’s and 50’s. I have an original of one of his courtroom illustrations.
Peggy, I’m so glad you wrote! Your grandfather is a great part of Kane history. Thank you for the information about your Uncle Richard! Please let us know if you ever come to visit Kane. We’d love to say hello!
