Oh, c'mon--with another 5 minutes of browsing, I discovered that the
ECP-18 was developed by Allen Fulmer, mathematics instructor at OCE
(Oregon College of Education) under an NSF grant that dates back to
1960.  He published a paper on it.

Here's an article about the 1960 NSF award:

OCE is now part of Western Oregon University in Monmoth.  Doubtless they
have some stuff by Fulmer buried in their stacks.

Back before the Intertubes, we used to do research the hard
way--sometimes it took months or years to dig information up.  Not
everything is online.

The question arises:  "Is this something that seriously interests you
and you're willing dedicate some real effort to?   Or is this just a
slow Saturday question?"

I'm sure that Fred could tell you about doing serious research.
