The Question:
from Bill Candlish C.F. Highfield


Very nice site. I have a painting of my Uncle Edwin Gardiner by C.F. Highfield. My Grandfather James G. Gardiner was Premier of Sask. then Fed. Minister of Agriculture with Mackenzie King. When his son Edwin was shotdown (and killed)in his spitfire in Dieppe. C.F. Highfield painted his portrait from a newspaper picture and sent the painting to my Grandfather's office in Ottawa. I now have the painting in my office.

 Hi, I believe the portrait you are referencing is "Red Tomahawk". Red Tomahawk was the Chief that is accredited with the killing of Sitting Bull. This painting is still in the family collection.
