[ih] Very early days of the IANA

On a website recently I saw a reference to the IANA pre-dating the 
Domain Name System -- that is, incredibly, that it was created in the 
early to mid 70s, when of course the DNS arrived in the early 80s 
following the ARPAnet split, and its original job was numbering and 
protocols only.

Does anyone have any material relating to the pre-naming existence of 
the IANA and its acquisition of naming related functions?
