Almost every year from 1925 through 1976, Norman Rockwell completed a painting for the annual Boy Scout calendar published by Brown & Bigelow. By 1929, the Boy Scout calendar was the most popular in America, and it remained so for many years.
Rockwell often asked the local children of Stockbridge, Massachusetts to pose for his paintings. Hank Bergmans was one of Rockwell's favorite models, appearing in numerous advertisements. He was a willing model again for Can't Wait, Rockwell's painting for the 1972 Boy Scout calendar. Asked what it was like to pose for Norman Rockwell he replied, "It made me feel terrific" (Susan Meyer, Norman Rockwell's People, New York, 1981, p. 202).
