Anibal Tejada was a buzy referee before the war. Not only did he officiate in many Copa America (South American Championships) match, he was also active at the first World Cup.

Firsts
It's not difficult to be the first at something when everything is new and never done before. Uruguay 1930 had its first ever match, the first goal, the first foul, the first expulsion, the first curse, the first fart of the World Cup. Anibal Tejada was the first referee to award a penalty (to Chile). It was also the first missed penalty.
