In the Tradition of Hammett, Chandler, Macdonald... and Snoopy

In August 1983, Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz paid tribute to another great writer (and fellow Santa Barbara resident): Ross Macdonald, who had passed away a month earlier.

It makes me wonder if they possibly knew each other. After all, there is a precedent of sorts -- Chandler and Dr. Suess were pals. And let's face it, Lew Archer would have had a field day with the Van Pelt family.
