Many thanks, JosÃ, for the PDF of the looked-for paper by D. T. Kemp, "Evidence of Mechanical Nonlinearity and Frequency Selective Wave Amplification in the Cochlea", Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology 224 (1979) 37-45.
Fig. 3 of that paper proves that Kemp was before Wilson. In that diagram, "spontaneous ear noise" is shown, forming a narrow peak at 1754 Hz.
I also wish to thank Martin Braun, who nicely wrote off-List to me, suggesting that I write to the List.
After having read Kemp's paper, I will possibly submit a further posting.

Thought you might already have had a copy of this - anyway, here it is Reinhardt.
