Copyright registration number A538836. Registered as a first class book. Copyright given to G. B. Trudeau.

Garry Trudeau’s original editor at Holt, circa 1972, was Don Hutter (Walker 2010, 128). And Trudeau’s editor in 1981 was Hutter, up till the time Hutter left Holt (Walker 2010, 95). GCD’s editing credit reflects the assumption that Hutter was Trudeau’s editor at Holt continuously between 1972 and 1981.

Indexer Notes

Garry Trudeau acknowledged employing Don Carlton as inker of Doonesbury (Alter 1990). There was a transition during the early 1970s in the lettering of the strip. After about a year (apparently ending in early 1973) during which Trudeau lettered the strip and Don Carlton inked it, Trudeau delegated the lettering to Carlton, who then remained for decades as inker and letterer of the strip (Walker 2010, 30–31). GCD’s credits reflect that the time period covered by this volume appears to begin during the time that Trudeau lettered and Carlton inked, and end during the time that Carlton inked and lettered.
