  1. ” he began a correspondence course in art with the Federal School of Applied Cartooning when he was a senior in high school. The school was famous for their “Draw Me!” ad campaigns often seen in magazines and on matchbook covers. Schulz eventually became an instructor there, as well.”

    I worked as an instructor at Art Instruction Schools (newer name for the school where Charles Schulz worked) in Minneapolis and actually met him there when he came to visit his dear friend Frieda Rich. She was the inspiration for the Peanuts character “Frieda with the naturally curly hair.” She was the leading fashion illustration instructor at the school and a wonderful artist who drew countless pen drawings of Twin Cities landmarks.

I think she said he did some of his Peanuts drawings there but can’t recall for sure.
