Conrad became famed for poking fun at U.S. presidents including Harry S. Truman, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, and his funny drawings even landed him on former leader Richard Nixon's list of enemies.

He spent the last three decades working at the Los Angeles Times and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize a total of three times throughout his 50-year career. He is survived by his wife of more than six decades, Kay, and their two sons and two daughters.
