Lizard like bird-hips

   Anybody know a good ref. for the genesis of the terms Saurischian and
Ornithischian?  I'm trying to explain in a "paper" I'm writing exactly *why*
those names were chosen when birds really have derived "lizard-hips"
(especially given the existence of Archaeopteryx (are-kay-oh-tare-ix) was
known at the time).
