The person who is widely accredited with first three-phase commit
(3PC) protocol is Skeen in

Skeen, D., "A Formal Model of Crash Recovery in a Distributed System,"
IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, vol.9, no.3, May 1983,

Searching high and low as I may, I wasn't able to find the persons who
are widely accredited with the first one-phase commit (1PC) protocol
and the first two-phase commit (2PC) protocol.

I would like the authors' names and a citation (just like cited in 3PC
above) for the first 1PC and the first 2PC.  If there is any
clarification needed, please don't hesitate to ask.  Thanks.
There is no answer at this time.
