    • Woody was the subject of one of 55 nude paintings commissioned for the 1936 Olympics by Adolf Hitler, by American artist Hubert Stowitts. However, the depiction of him as well as other Black and Jewish athletes offended the Nazi government and the exhibit was closed by the notorious Nazi official Alfred Rosenburg.
