The home of Charles Schulz, creator of Peanuts, was destroyed by a fire
The youngest of the children of Charles Schulz told the Associated Press that the widow settantottenne of his father, Jean Schulz, is due to be running away from home, not to stay involved in a fire. Here are the declarations of the son of Charles Schulz on this terrible incident:
Is the house in which he died. All their memorabilia, and every thing is lost. The fire has reached around at two in the morning. All is not lost.
Monte has also stated that they were not yet sure of what went actually lost:
Of course, the stuff of my father and their life together, all gone. I remember being in that house. I've never lived there, but I visit them very often. That time of our lives is now completely erased.
The brother of Monte, Craig, has sadly lost his home in California, because of the same fires, which have destroyed more than 3,500 homes and businesses, during the course of the past week.
Even if some of the artwork of the famous artist, among whom were also included drawings of characters such as Charlie Brown and Snoopy, were destroyed by the flames, most of the original works of Charles Schulz are still on display at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, which, fortunately, he survived these terrible fires.
Schulz was the cartoonist most widely read and highest paid of all time, in the years ’80 and ’90. The strips of the Peanuts have been read by 355 million people around the world, and is even entered in the Guinness book of world records. Charles Schulz died in California in 2000, a day before his last Sunday comic strip was published, at the age of 78 years.
