Is it "Dawson" or "Dawson City?"

Classification: Query
I have been working on my family genealogy for 25 years or so, and during that time I have developed a desire for accuracy that borders on an obcession. In that context, I have a question regarding a place name that has been driving me crazy because I cannot figure out which name is correct.

Was my father born in "Dawson" or "Dawson City?" I have found the city name stated both ways, with both supposedly correct and from credible sources, but can anyone here resolve my frustration with a definitive answer to the question, please? I would appreciate hearing from anyone who can straighten me out, and tell me what the OFFICIAL name of the town is. . . .if there IS a single official name. Thanks for the help
