I first encountered this word when researching the incident in the U.S. Senate in 1856 (I think), in which Sen. Charles Sumner of Massachusetts was physically attacked by Rep. Preston Brooks of South Carolina with a cane of guttapercha. Editing to put this hyperlink in.
I first encountered this word when I read Ulysses. Well, "read" might not be the proper verb for what I did. ;-)
