Clarence Nash

Born December 7, 1904 in Watonga, Oklahoma
Died February 20, 1985 in Burbank, California

Clarence Charles "Ducky" Nash was an American voice actor. He was best known for the Disney cartoon character Donald Duck, whose distinctive voice he provided for 50 years, also known as the voice of Daisy Duck in 1940. He was born in the rural community of Watonga, Oklahoma, and a street in that town is named in his honour. In 1993, he was posthumously made a Disney Legend for his contributions to Walt Disney films.

Walt Disney happened by when Nash gave his impersonation of a family of ducks. Disney declared Nash perfect for the role of a talking duck in their upcoming animated short, The Wise Little Hen. The duck, of course, was Donald Duck, who Nash went on to voice for almost 50 years, in over 120 shorts and films. The last film to feature Nash's famous voice was 1983's Mickey's Christmas Carol, although he continued to provide Donald's voice for commercials, promos and other miscellaneous material until his death.

Words were written out for me phonetically. I learned to quack in French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese and German
