I wrote a short article about this word in Esquire a few years
ago. I think OED has an early twentieth century quote in the
files, and I'd be surprised if we couldn't find a much earlier
one now.

Carlson has been trying to get in touch with Shulman but Shulman is
never in and his residence won't take messages. If Popik knows a
good way to get in touch with him Shulman would be grateful.
