Following Wade Sampson's article Walt and DeMolay, the DeMolay organization did further research trying to find copies of the Mickey Mouse comic strip done for its newsletter in the Thirties. Unfortunately, so far they have only been able to locate a better version of the very first strip along with a caption that confirms that it was Fred Spencer who did the artwork and possibly the scripting.

Those strips have become one of the Holy Grails of Disney history. If you have any suggestions as to how to locate the other ones, do drop me a line.

Do you know if this is available in public libraries like the Congress Library? I am in the US and could try to find it there. However I would appreciate that you tell me if it had already been tried, so I won't lost my time... thanks.

No idea if that is available in any public library. That being said it has not been tried.
