History

According to Wikipedia:

The Harvey Wallbanger was allegedly invented in 1952 by three-time world champion mixologist Donato 'Duke' Antone, the brother-in-law of New York state Senator Carlo Lanzillotti. Legend has it that the drink was named after a Manhattan Beach surfer.

The drink was little known outside of California until 1970, when it became briefly popular due to being featured as a cocktail on TWA flights.
