    It was first played to honor the end of the War of 1812 and George Washington (who was already dead). Aside from that, I think it was first played to honor Andrew Jackson (rather first use to honor a still living President), and first used to inaugurate Martin Van Buren. But it wasn't popular yet. So...

    I have no idea, but that should narrow in the time frame for the rest of y'all.

    I haven't a clue, but given what appears to be a spate of random guesses, I'll chime in with Jacqueline Kennedy.

    Sarah Polk. She was concerned that President Polk – a man of small stature – wasn’t drawing enough attention when he entered a room, so she arranged for “Hail to the Chief” to be played to announce her husband’s arrival.
