I haven't tried looking through back issues of _Artificial Intelligence_ for this but they are archived in most college and university libraries. Why was it hard to find?

You are probably already aware of it but there is another article of interest:

Douglas B. Lenat . 1983 . EURISKO: A Program That Learns New Heuristics and Domain Concepts. _Artifical Intelligence_ 21 : 61--98.

To where (as LDC also asked) are you referring? You have a chance to obtain a keywork.

Duly seize keyworks.
