Camel is a horse...[edit]

If the dates are correct for the quote in this article, then this man did not invent the aphorism "a camel is a horse designed by committee", which this article implies.

An earlier quote indicates the expression was in use much earlier:

1952, Proceedings Regular Meeting, Ohio Valley Transportation Advisory Board, Pacific Northwest Advisory Board, pg. 24:

"A camel is a horse designed by a committee, so we hope that this committee will—and I think it will—function appropriately." Youtryandyoutry (talk) 14:42, 18 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]
