As I said, I am stumped and sent a message to HQ. I got a prompt reply which is duplicated here:
Thanks for your e-mail and I have given this a lot of thought over the
past few years. I started compiling data from old QST's on the pre-war
program and, while I have not finished, I have compiled a folder with a
lot of both pre-war and post war data. And, you are correct, it is
Thanks for the "push" and while I have some projects that are of a

Subject: First DXCC?
There is Tons of information on the DXCC(r) award on the internet. Most
it revolves around the "new" award begun after the Second World War.
However, is there any interest in the ancient history of the award? For
example who received the very first award? What was it called? How
awards were presented before amateur radio went silent for the Second
War? Is there a list of these folks? There seems to be a list of
before and of course after the War.
I have found DeSoto's initial thoughts on the subject and they make
fascinating reading. But finding information on this award on the
has not been a search with much success.
Am I in the minority looking for this history? Could you post a page on
this subject and link it to the current award's page?
I thank you for your time to address the above questions.
