The first edition of the OED had 4,00,000 definitions and was first published in 1928, 71 years after the editors started working on it

It has also been reported that one of the early members of the OED, William Chester Minor, was involved in a psychopathic murderer. William Chester Minor did much of the research for OED in a lunatic asylum
