THE MODEL FOR ICONIC ARMY POSTER

Walter Botts, the Man Who Modeled Uncle Sam's Pose for J.M. Flagg's Famous  Poster ~ Vintage Everyday

The man who modeled as Uncle Sam poses in front of the iconic poster, 1970  - Rare Historical Photos

Walter Botts (1900-72)  posing as Uncle Sam in front of the
iconic poster, ca. 1970.


Artist James Montgomery Flagg referred to his own mirror image
for the portrait of “Uncle Sam” he created for the cover of the July
6, 1916 issue of Leslie’s Weekly. The figure in the long-tailed coat,
stove pipe hat and sideburns was captioned “What Are You Doing
for Preparedness?”
When asked to update the highly effective image for use in World
War 2, Flagg hired a Hoosier-born veteran who’d posed for Norman Rockwell. According to his widow’s memoir, Walter Botts was
chosen over other models for Flagg’s Army poster “because he
had the longest arms, the longest nose, and the bushiest
eyebrows.”

Botts reportedly suggested the pointing gesture when the artist
asked “Walt, what are you going to do with your long arms,
sitting there?”

Diahann Carroll
(Carol Diahann Johnson)
(July 17, 1935 – October 4, 2019)


Carroll was diagnosed with
breast cancer in 1997. She said the diagnosis
"stunned" her because there was no family history of breast cancer and
she had always had a healthy lifestyle. She underwent nine weeks of
radiation therapy, and was clear since. She died today in Los Angeles.


Her 1968 debut in Julia (NBC) the first series on
American television to
star a black woman in a nonstereotypical role, was a milestone both in
her career and the medium. In the 1980s she played the role of a mixed-
race diva in the
primetime soap opera Dynasty.
