Select MIN date from view

I have a view (vwHistory).  This view is a history of events that have happened to a claim.  It looks something like this:

vwHistory
ClaimNumber (varchar)
EventDate (DateTime)
Attribute1 (varchar)
Attribute2 (varchar)
Attribute3 (varchar)

ClaimNumber and EventDate together make a composite key.

I need a select statement that will give me all of the data values for the earliest EventDate for a particular claim number.

For example if my table looks like this:

ClaimNumber   EventDate     Att1        Att2      Att3
1                     1/1/04          A            B          C
1                     1/2/04          D            E          F
1                     1/3/04          G            H          I
2                     1/1/04          J             K          L
2                     1/2/04          M           N          O
3                     1/5/04          P            Q          R

Then my result set would look like this:

ClaimNumber   EventDate     Att1        Att2      Att3
1                     1/1/04          A            B          C
2                     1/1/04          J             K          L
3                     1/5/04          P            Q          R


Attributes 1 - 3 may or may not be identical for each row.


Thanks in advance,
