Egg Cream with Egg?

I have always thought that egg creams were NOT made with egg and just had three ingredients: chocolate syrup, seltzer, and milk. However, I heard from a long time New York City resident that initially, egg creams were made with egg and were responsible for the foamy head of an egg cream. What! Is this true? Is black white? Does the sun come up in the west? Can someone confirm this?
