Background on Jim Powell

A devoted reader of newspaper cartoon strips, Jim Powell began collecting Peanuts cartoon books in the mid-1970s, prompted by obtaining two pure-bred beagles for his son. He cited Linus, talking to Sally, as inspiration:

Panel one -- Linus: "You know what my Grandfather says?

Panel two -- Linus: "He says every child should have a dog. . . "

Panel three -- Linus: He says that a child who does not have a dog is like a child deprived"

Panel four -- Snoopy (lying on top of doghouse): "The actual term is 'Living without benefit of beagle' "

From dogs, Powell branched out into cats, and beginning in 1978, began collecting books of the new cartoon Garfield. Other cartoons soon followed, including The Far Side, Calvin and Hobbes, Doonesbury, and Dilbert.

Contents of Collection

The Powell cartoon book collection consists of 419 mass market paperback copies of popular cartoon books, representing the work of well-known cartoonists such as Charles M. Schultz, Johnny Hart, Gary Larson, Garry Trudeau, Jim Davis, and Berke Breathed. The collection has particularly rich runs of Peanuts, Garfield, and Doonesbury.
