Origins of ProCite?

Can anyone provide information on the origins of the ProCite mark and program? I remember seeing a copy of the program manual on the shelf of one of my professors back in 1986, but the Web Archive records only go back to 1998 (of course). When did ProCite first appear?

I would suggest contacting the Sales & Marketing Team about this. They can be reached at 800-722-1227, from 8 AM to 5 PM (PT), Monday through Friday or through this online form:

No worries. I was able to track down the original author of the software, who kindly fielded my query.
