Wickens et al. (2003) is the earliest I'm aware of:

advanced display technology. Human Factors: The Journal of the Human
Factors and Ergonomics Society, 45(3), 360-380.
Actually, in that paper he cites Wickens et al. (2001), but I can't seem to find
a copy of this manuscript anywhere, and it has fewer citations:
