1973 Slang

I'm working on a flashback set in 1973 in which one teenager calls another what would be the equivalent of "nerd" or "geek".  Is "nerd" an acceptable word choice, or was there slang more appropriate to the time period?  I've searched a ton of slang dictionaries, but have been unable to find one that specifies when those terms became popular.

Thanks!
