Charles Schulz letters, drawings fail to attract bidders at auction

Author:

A rare archive of letters and drawings by Minnesota-born "Peanuts" creator Charles Schulz did not sell at a Sotheby's auction Friday in New York, reported The Associated Press.

The auction house hoped that the collection would bring $250,000 to $300,000.

The lot included 44 autographed letters Schulz sent to a young girl named Tracey Claudius in 1970-1971, some with original drawings of main "Peanuts" character Charlie Brown.

Schulz, who was born Nov. 26, 1922 in Minneapolis and grew up in St. Paul, died in 2000 in California at age 77.
