California wildfire destroys home of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz

13 Oct

California’s deadly wildfires have destroyed the home and memorabilia collection of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz although his widow escaped the blaze.

His son, Monte Schulz, said flames claimed the house in Santa Rosa on Monday, where his step-mother Jean Schulz, lived.

He said he had been told there was nothing left of their collection of Charlie Brown drawings and keepsakes.

However, most of his father’s original artwork is in the Charles M Schulz Museum nearby which has so far escaped the fires that destroyed thousands of homes and businesses, and killed 29 people.

The Schulzes built the California split-level home in the 1970s and the cartoonist lived there until his death in 2000.
