How long has the reuben sandwich been around?

I found out an interesting fact about the reuben sandwich--since BCEagle posted such. How long has it been around do you guys out there think?
I'll answer later. No fair googling.

"panini"--looks a little naked, but correct for the grill.

Any answers to my reuben question?

I am going to split this off to it's own thread so we do not hijack BCEagle's original question.

It was named for Ruben, who was Adam and Eve's great-grandson. Ruben moved to Dusseldorf in 3942 B.C., where he opened a deli called The Hungry Hun. His signature sandwich, which utilized the local delicacies sauerkraut, rye bread, pickled beef, and mustard, was a huge success, along with his famous mammoth burgers.

I did NOT Google this!

If you have to ask how long it's been around, I wouldn't eat it. I'd throw it out!
