MORE INFO ON CHARLES SCHULTZ: 2/12/00: Died in his sleep at about 9:45 pm in Santa Rosa, CA. He was suffering from colon cancer, with which he was diagnosed in November 1999. He also had Parkinson's disease.

He had a clause in his contract with United Features Syndicate that dictated that the "Peanuts" comic strip had to end with his death.

Won the Reuben Award, comic art's highest honor, in 1955 and 1964

1978: Named International Cartoonist of the Year.

1990: Named France's Commander of Arts and Letters, one of that country's highest awards for excellence in the arts.

Reportedly battled depression and anxiety.

World War II veteran.

Named Charlie Brown after an instructor at the art correspondence school he attended and taught at.

The day he died was also the day the last original Peanuts strip ran.

Originally wanted to name his now-famous strip "Li'l Folks." United Features Syndicate balked at this because there had once been a strip titled "Little Folks." After some brainstorming, a United Features executive came up with the title "Peanuts." Schulz accepted the new title because the first date of publication was fast approaching, but he disliked the title to his dying day. "Peanuts" debuted in seven newspapers on 2 October 1950. It went on to be the most-syndicated strip in history.

Was buried with full military honors

Sons Monte and Craig; daughters Merideth, Jill, and Amy.

Despite his poor health in later years, he refused to have ghostwriters draw "Peanuts." These strips are notable by the slight shakiness in the lines.

At his burial, four Sopwith Camel biplanes flew overhead in the Missing Man formation.

His comic strips featuring the character Snoopy, in his World War One Flying Ace strips, are credited with reviving interest in WWI aircraft, especially the Sopwith Camel, which Snoopy pretended to fly.

Was a .50-caliber machine gunner in World War Two. He forgot to load the thing during the one time he actually had the opportunity to use it; fortunately the German soldier he ran into surrendered.

Of German and Norwegian descent.

As a youth, he had a drawing of his dog appear in Ripley's "Believe It or Not" (1949).

Owned a dog (a mutt) named Spike.

5/27/00: Nearly 100 syndicated cartoonists created special Peanuts-themed comics as a lasting memorial to him, as creator of the enduring and beloved strip.

Was the only child of Carl and Dena Schulz of St. Paul, Minnesota. His father owned a barbershop in St. Paul. His mother died of cancer in 1943.

Attended Richards Gordon Elementary School and St. Paul Central High School. Later, he enrolled in an extension class for cartooning with the University of Minnesota.

"Li'l Folks" (later "Peanuts") originally ran in the women's section of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The four original "Peanuts" characters were Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Patty (not Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt), and Shermy.

His nickname, Sparky, comes from the horse in "Barney Google."

His studio in Santa Rosa was One Snoopy Place.

At the peak of his popularity, "Peanuts" captured as many as 355 million readers, and he was earning from US$30 to US$40 million a year.

Schulz liked to play hockey, which is why hockey and skating were occasionally featured in both the comic strip and the animated programs.

The never seen character of the "Little Red-Haired Girl" that Charlie Brown has a crush on was based on a girl Schulz knew in his youth, who turned him down when he asked her for a date.

Was struggling to come up with the name for a new character when he happened to see a bowl of candy, and decided on "Peppermint Patty."

He was promoted a couple of grades when he was in school, and this was the cause of his depression and anxiety; the older kids who were now his classmates were constantly teasing him because of his small size, which also fostered a deep competitive streak in him.

Prior to his health in decline, Schultz used to play in a senior men's hockey league.
