Oops, irrelevant. Misread the question... Edited.
All I really know is that Homma would have been 18 or 19 when Ueshiba passed away. I don't know when he started. There is a photo of him with a caption saying he was 16 at the time the photo was taken. So at least 1967.
And Don, not questioning your math but in that same quote he said "almost 40 years". So maybe a little later than 1962?
