Check Endorsed and Signed: "Barnaby Conrad" and endorsed "deposit to acct of/John Leggett", 6x3. Carpenteria, California, March 11, 2002. Check #5072, drawn on Conrad's personal account at the Bank of America, payable to John Leggett for $100.00. Memo: "Snoopy Book". 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 John Leggett. 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). John Leggett (1917-2015) wrote several nonfiction books, including Gulliver House(1979) and Wilder Stone (1960). His biographies of American literary figures include A Daring Young Man (William Saroyan) and Ross and Tom (a twin biography of Ross Lockridge and Thomas Heggen). He was an English professor at the University of Iowa from 1969-1987, where he also served as the third director of the Iowa Writers' Workshop from 1970-1987. Bank processing stamps on verso.
