I was doing some "installing VS on a new VM, so I have way too much time to kill" Wikipedia browsing, and came across this tidbit:
 
November 3, 1962 – The earliest recorded use of the term "personal computer" features in The New York Times in a story about John Mauchly's speech the day before to the American Institute of Industrial Engineers.

He is quoted as saying, "There is no reason to suppose the average boy or girl cannot be master of a personal computer.
