BARNABY CONRAD and JOHN CHAMPLIN Endorsed $100 check written to a contributor to Snoopy's Guide to the Writing Life Check Signed and Endorsed: "Barnaby Conrad", 6x3. Carpenteria, California, April 16, 2002. Check #5116, drawn on Conrad's personal account at the Bank of America, payable to Charles Champlin 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 Charles Champlin. 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. Charles Champlin, the author of several books on film and also three memoirs, hosted two series on PBS. The check is endorsed in his name by John Champlin, not by the payee, who was legally blind from macular degeneration (as recounted in his 2001 book My Friend You Are Legally Blind: A Writer's Struggle with Macular Degeneration). Bank processing stamps on verso. Otherwise, fine condition. A portion of the screen image has been obscured to protect sensitive information. The original check does not contain these concealing marks.
