When was particle board first used?

16 years ago

I recently bought a bookcase that I thought was from the 40's or so. When I got it home to clean it up, I noticed some of it was veneered over particle board. So I was wondereing when particle board was first used. Also, it had casters that were mounted into an injection molded plastic piece. Seems like it's newer than I thought. Still a nice piece, though. Any tips on identifying the age are greatly appreciated.
