When was Walker crater named?

How can I find out when this particular crater on the moon was named?

I want to know when the Walker Crater (named for Joe Walker, the test pilot killed in 1966) got its name. I haven't been able to find any info except its location on the moon and its size. Can someone else either find out when it was so named, or else help me find a way to find out?

Thank you!
