It was originally called "reaginic" antibody.  I don't know who first described
it as a unique entity but the critical work was performed in the late '60's
early '70's by Kimizhigi Ishizaka and his wife, who's first name I can't
remember.  I'm not sure of the spelling either, but it should be close.
