The Abandoned An’ Forsaked - How Did Alfred First Meet Batman?
by Brian Cronin (from CBR)

Something (I forget what) piqued my interest as to when Alfred was added to Batman canon. A bit of Googling quickly brought me to this article, which not only includes Alfred’s first appearance (in Batman #16 from 1943), but also details how his backstory has changed down the years — the one we’re most familiar with (that he’s worked for the Waynes since Bruce was a child and always known about Batman) wasn’t actually the case until the mid ‘80s.
