A bit of trivia...

 

In Calvin Schmid's 1983 book "Statistical Graphics - Design Principles and Practices", on p. 11 he says that Balchin and Coleman coined the word [he references W. G. V. Balchin and Alice M. Coleman, "Graphicacy Should be the Fourth Ace in the Pack," The Cartographer, (1966), 23-28; W. G. V. Balchin, "Graphicacy," Geography, 57 (1972), 185-195.]

 

Anyone know of an older reference for the term 'graphicacy'? :)

I haven't been able to uncover any further information to either confirm nor deny this claim. Unless we dig up evidence to the contrary, I suppose we can assume that this claim is correct.
