Dr. Campbell was a small-town physician that made house calls for more than 50 years. Artist Norman Rockwell, who was a patient and neighbor of Dr. Campbell's, used him for several illustrations. Probably the most famous painting depicting Dr. Campbell was Rockwell's "Before the Shot" that was created for the cover of Saturday Evening Post in 1958. Dr. Campbell did his own laboratory work and developed his own x-rays and continued making house calls until he retired on his 83rd birthday.
