What is the general history of the US postal "business reply mail" ? When did it begin?

I understand the concept as most articles I've found explain, but none of them offer details about when it was first employed. I have been collecting them for a while with intent of using the characteristic "no postage necessary" box and dark black bars there-under for a collage-style art project, and just lately I was reading a 1938 issue of Coronet (a Reader's Digest style magazine) and inside was one such Business Reply Mail card still attached to the spine on the inside front cover. Is there any indication who might have the oldest Business Reply Mail card?
