History of Informational Sound

Hello, Auditory.

As I prepare an introduction to the proceedings of ICAD, the International
Conference on Auditory Display, I am gathering material on historical uses of
non-speech audio to convey information.  The workshop was on the use of
non-speech audio at the human/machine interface and included auditory data
representation and more general auditory interfaces.  (By the way, Al Bregman
was kind enough to write an excellent Foreword to the volume.)

In looking for the predecessors to this work, examples such as the use of
radios to diagnose early computers by way of their interference, early SONAR
development, even alarms, church bells, and automobile engine diagnosis are of
some interest.

Can anybody refer me to papers, chapters, anecdotal information, and people
who might help make this a more complete and interesting work?

Thanks.  Please respond to:
