The 1942 election to select inductees to the Baseball_Hall_of_Fame was the first to be conducted in three years, and the only regular election in the years 1940 to 1944; in 1939 the Baseball_Writers_Association_of_America (BBWAA) had moved to hold elections every three years rather than annually, now that the Hall had opened.
