The Guinness Book of Records was created after an argument about what?

Answer:

The fastest game bird in Europe

On this day in 1955, the first edition of “The Guinness Book of Records” was published in Great Britain. The inspiration for the record book can be traced to November 1951, when Sir Hugh Beaver, managing director of the Guinness Brewery was on a hunting trip in Ireland. After failing to shoot a golden plover, Beaver and the members of his hunting party debated whether the creature was Europe’s fastest game bird but were unable to locate a book with the answer. Thinking that patrons of Britain’s pubs would enjoy a record book which could be used to settle friendly disagreements, Beaver decided to have one produced.
