I originally set up this blog to showcase the old Dope Rider comic strips I occasionally did for High Times from the mid-1970s through the mid-1980s. With High Times' 40th anniversary issue in 2014, I restarted the strip and have been doing my best to get one done for each issue. A few months after they appear in the magazine, I will archive them here. Note: all images are copyrighted by Paul Kirchner.

If you'd like to purchase Dope Rider merchandise, visit my Dope Rider Store at CafePress.com and click on a design you like. Your patronage is most appreciated!

Erich Meyerhoff (1919 - 2015)

Erich Meyerhoff was a longtime friend of my wife's family. He was in charge of the Cornell Medical Library for many years and when I moved to New York in 1970 to go to Cooper Union School of Art he gave me a part time job in the library that kept me afloat. Cooper Union had free tuition bu I had to cover the rent on my Lower East Side apartment--$80 a month in those days. 

Erich was one of those wonderful people you meet now and then. A kind person who was interested in everything.

My sister-in-law took this picture of him a few months ago when he was looking at an album of my recent Dope Rider strips.
