Electronic – When exactly was the RS-232 standard issued?


This year is 50th anniversary of RS-232 standard. Despite its age it is still used nowadays, and I work in company that has to deal with it.

So we have a half-serious idea to celebrate the exact day the standard was issued. Does anyone knows that date? Maybe someone has printed copy to look into?

Though this questions relates more to history than to electrical engineering, I think that this site is the best place to find people who might have an answer. I've asked this question on Superuser, it was closed as off-topic, but I was advised to ask here.
