Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1978. "Doonesbury is a comic strip by G. B. Trudeau. It chronicles the adventures and lives of a vast array of different characters, of different ages, professions, and backgrounds from the President of the United States to the title character, Michael Doonesbury, a struggling middle aged remarried father. Frequently political in nature, Doonesbury features characters professing a range of affiliations, but the cartoon’s editorial slant is primarily noted for a liberal outlook. The name Doonesbury is a portmanteau of the word doone 1960s prep school slang for someone unafraid to appear foolish with the surname of the roommate who was given that nickname, Charles Pillsbury. The strip marked its official thirty-fifth anniversary on October 26, 2005."
