Charles Schulz Centenary

Charles Schulz, 1986

November 26, 2022, marks the centenary of the birth of Charles Schulz. He was born in Minneapolis in 1922 (d. 2000), he became widely regarded as one of the most influential cartoonists in history. Schulz is especially beloved for Peanuts, which at its height was published daily in 2,600 papers in 75 countries, in 21 languages. During the strip’s run, Schulz took only one vacation, a five-week break in late 1997 to celebrate his 75th birthday; reruns of the strip ran, the only time that occurred during Schulz’s life.

In Karsh’s book American Legends (Bullfinch Press, 1992) Karsh wrote of the artist “He presented me with America’s favorite beagle, a tiny velvet “Snoopy,” as a gift to my wife, and it remains among her favorite sentimental treasures.”
