Check "Code Complete" by Steve McConnel, he gives the explanation 
and also several references. One that I found from a quick glance 
is "Hansen & Yim, 1987". Also a bibliography(!) on the subject of 
code style is cited: "Edward & Oman in Sigplan Notices Feb 1990".

McConnell has a new version of his book out it may have more 
recent references too, I only have the 1993 edition at hand.
