Roots of the term "gammatone"

Dear List,

I am looking for the first time use of the term "gammatone". Flanagan
('65), Johannesma and de Boer ('72,'75) did not use that term. Patterson
et al. write in their '88 APU report "An efficient auditory filterbank
based on the gammatone function" that "Johannesma (1972) used this
function to summarize revcor data, although he did not refer to it as
the gammatone function, and the function was not fitted to revcor data.
The name appears to have been adopted by de Boer and de Jongh (1978)".
However, I am not able to find the term "gammatone" in the de Boer and
de Jongh paper "On cochlear encoding: Potentialities and limitations of
the reverse-correlation technique" JASA 63(1), 1978.

Any ideas?
