I remember hearing that the first use of "lobbyist" was a U.S. president, and I did find a date of 1837 in an online dictionary. It seems impossible to find any other info online to confirm or refute this however. (Google gives me a bunch of irrelevant crap, no matter how I phrase the search.) Can anyone else find anything on this, including which president, and whether he was really the originator, or perhaps just the first in the U.S.? --radiojon 05:58, 1 Sep 2003 (UTC)
