I did find the precise information on Wikipedia when I went, and there was a link to the following page at MIT:
http://web.mit.edu/invent/iow/simjian.html

When Simjian initially came up with the idea of creating a hole-in-the-wall machine that would allow customers to make financial transactions, the idea was met with a great deal of skepticism. Starting in 1939, Simjian registered 20 patents related to the device and persuaded what is now Citicorp to give it a trial. After six months, the bank reported that there was little demand.
