Conrad's "Chain Reaction" peace sculpture in Santa Monica

Paul Francis Conrad (born June 27, 1924) is an American political cartoonist. He was chief editorial cartoonist for the Los Angeles Times from 1964 to 1993 and had been syndicated to hundreds of newspapers worldwide. He earned the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 1964, 1971 and 1984. Conrad has also won two Overseas Press Club awards (1981 and 1970) and in 1988, the Society of Professional Journalists/Sigma Delta Chi (SDX) honored him with his seventh Distinguished Service Award for Editorial Cartooning. He was also named in Richard Nixon's enemy list in 1973. He has written several books and his work is in the permanent exhibition of the United States Library of Congress.

A prolific cartoonist, Conrad drew numerous cartoons about Richard Nixon's downfall. Perhaps the funniest, and most profane, was one the Los Angeles Times refused to run. Just prior to the vote to impeach President Nixon, Conrad drew the president in only a pair of tight fitting underwear, with the caption "The Last Nixon Supporter in Washington."

Born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Conrad started cartooning at the University of Iowa for the Daily Iowan. After receiving his B.A. in art in 1950, he worked for the Denver Post, where he spent 14 years before joining the Los Angeles Times. Conrad and his wife, Kay King, a former society writer for The Denver Post, have two sons and two daughters.
