: Hi Rob,
: we were just doing research about this obscure episode ourselves and have never found evidence of this whole thing being true.
: In the March 1964 issue of the New York Folklore Quarlerly a ca. 12 pp. article was supposedly published (titled: "The Declaration of Independence for Grennwich Village") detailing the abovementioned endeavour of Duchamp and his friends.
