Conrad (with Monte Schulz, Charles Schulz's son) edited Snoopy's Guide to the Writing Life (2003), with chapters of advice for writers penned by many successful authors, including Herbert Gold. This check was no doubt associated with that project. Author, artist, and sportsman Barnaby Conrad (1922-2013) published over 30 books during his illustrious career, illustrating and designing the covers for many of them. He first studied art, attending the University of Mexico. While there, he developed an interest in bullfighting, eventually becoming a renowned matador in the ring who fought in Spain, Mexico, and Peru. He is the only American to bullfight in all three of these countries to date. His works include My Life as a Matador (1956), Gates of Fear (1957), The Cigar: An Illustrated History of Fine Smoking (1996), and Snoopy's Guide to the Writing Life (2002). Conrad founded the Santa Barbara Writers Conference in 1973, running it for over 30 years. Herbert Gold (b. 1924) published his first novel, Birth of a Hero, in 1951. A traveler and friend of "Beat Generation" poet Allen Ginsburg, he has written in a variety of genres, including a memoir: Still Alive! A Temporary Condition (2008). Bank processing stamps on verso. Notch at top left corner. Bottom edge lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition. Two pieces. A portion of the screen image has been obscured to protect sensitive information.
