    I do have the book, so I'll look it up for you. It cites one paper by Grimm:

    C. A. Grimm, A conjecture on consecutive composite numbers, Amer. Math. Monthly, 76(1969) 1126-1128.

    I imagine this is the original source, given the name, so I think the answer to your question is 1969 or thereabouts.

    Edit: Here's a paper mentioning it:
