I don't know the answer to your question, but I know blue lined paper
goes back before 1860. The Waring Library has Theses of graduates of the
Medical College of the State of South Carolina between 1825 and 1860 and
a fair number of them are written on paper with blue lines.
Interesting question. Hope someone of you out there knows the answer and
will share it.
