Charles Schulz, 1986

We mark the anniversary of Charles Schulz’s final “Peanuts” strip which ran in the Sunday papers on February 13, 2000, the day after Schulz died in his sleep at his California home at age 77.

In his 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.”
