Check signed and endorsed: "Barnaby Conrad", "Evan Hunter", 6x3. Santa Barbara, California, 2002 February 5. Conrad's personal check, drawn on the Bank of America, payable to Hunter for $100. Check entirely filled out by Conrad, including memo: "Snoopy Book". Endorsed by Hunter. EVAN HUNTER (1926-2005) was the legal name, and one of several pen names, used by the author born Salvatore Albert Lambino. As Hunter, he published the novel Blackboard Jungle (1954), based on his own brief experience teaching in the Bronx. It was made into a film the following year. While continuing to write as Hunter, this author is perhaps even better known as ED McBAIN, to whom his many best-selling crime novels are credited. He also penned several screenplays, including that for Hitchcock's The Birds (1963). The works of BARNABY CONRAD, who published his autobiography, Fun While It Lasted, in1969, include My Life as a Matador (1956), Gates of Fear (1957), The Cigar: An Illustrated History of Fine Smoking (1996), and The Blonde (1999). Conrad founded the Santa Barbara Writers Conference in 1973, running it for over 30 years. Conrad edited Snoopy's Guide to the Writing Life, with chapters of advice for writers penned by many successful authors, including Hunter. This check was no doubt associated with that project. Tape at top right. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
