The life of Charles M. Schulz . . . . 26

The Washington Times Weekly - - Page Two -

For 50 years, Charles M. Schulz worked alone, draw­ing his 17,897 strips. With a few strokes of a quill pen — a squig­gle there, black dot here — this bar­ber’s son, this “noth­ing young man” from “the cor­ner of Selby and Snelling” in St. Paul, de­sired noth­ing more than to be thought of as or­di­nary. At the time of his death, on Feb. 13, 2000, “Peanuts” ap­peared in more than 2,600 news­pa­pers in 75 coun­tries, yet the car­toon­ist con­tin­ued to think it amaz­ing that any­one liked his work: “I just did the best I could.”
