The online etymology dictionary gives the first appearance of
the word as being in 1918.

Whether the word was in common usage in 1947 is another matter
altogether. My feeling is that it probably wasn't, but I suspect
that somebody well-versed in the history of pulp science fiction
would be best situated to answer that question.
