Barks was born on Mar. 27, 1901.
Between 1942 and 1966, Barks wrote nearly 500 duck stories for Disney.
It was company policy for all the writers to work anonymously under the Disney banner. But Barks had such a unique style, his fans could tell when he wrote a story. And even though they didn't know his name, they referred to him as the "Good Duck Artist."
It was only after he retired that his fans finally learned who he really was.
