M-W has 1950.  OED appeals needed before 1914.
Using NewspaperArchive:

15 June, 1877  _Oshkosh(WI) Daily Northwestern_ Page 1?/col 2.

<<The amateur Editor and Editrix have fallen into a grave inconsistency in their debate.>>

[Evidently a husband/wife team of publishers/editors of a small weekly religious paper.]
