	For what it's worth, I've carefully read a complete run of WDC&S
up to 
the point where Duckburg is first mentioned in a Barks story (issue 
49), and I've seen no newspaper strip containing the word Duckburg.
	A few early strips do mention a home town, but it's never

But don't you have all the newspapers strips as well? It has already
been documented several places that the first place you get Duckburg in
WDC&S is by Barks but that does not exclude the use of the name in other
places before.

I am now working my way thru the cartoons so I soon will have an answer
to that. But I don't believe that I will find anything there because he
always lives in Hollywood, CA as I remember.
