Tweddell (on the right), to fourteen-year-old artist Claude Picard (on the left), son of Mr. and Mrs. Vital B Picard from Edmundston, who placed third in a drawing competition open to all young Canadians under the age of sixteen. Participants had to submit a personal reproduction of the “Hunter Robin Hood” and include a Robin Hood box as proof of purchase.

By this time, Claude Picard had already distinguished himself several times for his remarkable artistic talents.
