Doing a google search for "pre war dxcc" netted the answer:
--Frank Lucas, W8CRA. DXCC Certificate #1(Pre-war). The first great American DXer. Lucas was also possessed of one of the greatest ears of all timehe was reportedly able to identify almost every DX call on the air during the late 30s by the fist, the impact of propagation on the signal, and other individual characteristics.
It came from a site with lots of great reading:
