I didn't know there was a University by that name. In downtown Minneapolis
there is an Apartment Hotel named the Drexel. Carl Barks apparently lived
in that hotel when he drew for the Calgary Eye Opener. Local comic book
fan, Dave Nruz, discovered that residence searching through some public
records. I ran into Dave at a local comic shop, and he told me the room
number but I didn't write it down. :( He said that Charles Shultz boyhood
home was across the street from the Drexel (that house is now gone) and
that Shultz was a young boy and living at that address when Carl was at the
Drexel. It is possible they could have met.
