1992.  If the library I use is open this Sunday, I will try to locate it.
However, one thing to note here is that Hillenius is the #2 author

I am working on it.  The library closed before I could get that far
Saturday.  What is more, I am using Science Citation Index to find
*other* articles on the subject, by authors not associated with the
Ruben et alii paper.
