BARNABY CONRAD and DONALD NEWLOVE Endorsed $100 check written to fellow author and contributor to Snoopy's Guide to the Writing Life. The contributor also signed the included typed manuscript. Check signed "Barnaby Conrad" and endorsed "Donald Newlove", 6x3. Carpenteria, California, April 23, 2002 Check #5124, drawn on Conrad's personal account at the Bank of America, payable to Donald Newlove for $100.00. Memo: "Snoopy Book". Accompanied by Autograph Note signed ""OK/Don Newlove" on a typed draft of his contribution to Conrad's Snoopy's Guide to the Writing Life. The draft, illustrated with a Peanuts cartoon, contains these handwritten additions by Newlove: the first an addition to the introduction, "He is now writing 'Blindfolded Before the Firing Squad' - a novel/memoir about his life as Fyodor Dostoevsky"; the second supplementary note: "Many Thanks, Barnaby!" 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 Donald Newlove. 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. Donald Newlove wrote novels throughout the 1970s, including Leo and Theodore and The Drunks. He has since reviewed books for the Philadelphia Inquirer, Kirkus Reviews and other publications, and writes books on the writing craft. These include Painted Paragraphs and Invented Voices. Perhaps his most moving publication is the memoir Those Drinking Days (1981), which discusses his own personal battle with alcohol abuse as well as the same battle that many more notable writers endured.
