I believe that the first contest ever held was the ARRL DX test of 1929.  It
ran for the month (:-o) of February.  The first SS was held in 1932 and ran for
two weeks.  I think the multiplier system was used in both contests, although
I'm not sure.  Also not sure about bands/scores or first phone contest.
