Okay, Brian, here's my data:

b. 1941

novice in 1954 --  Federal Bldg in Little Rock
general in 1955 -- also Federal Bldg in LR
extra in 1971--  Detroit FCC office

began using AM in 1955 with a Collins TCS -- a pair of 1625s  
modulating a single 1625, which worked surprisingly well on 75 and  
40M  AM/CW.
