First contest I was in was 1957. Even when I felt I was a "real contester", 1959 or so, a 35/hr was pretty good for me. ;-)

I have a question for old time contesters.  Before the Internet,  packet 
radio, DX clusters and skimmers, what were typical CW and SSB contest  running 
rates?  I imagine they must have been much less than current  ones.
