``Update functions'' in POP2.

Someone, I don't remember who, pointed out that the "setter" idea (i.e.
a function that maps an access procedure (not its name) to a
corresponding mutator) is not original with T, but was in the language
POP2. Does anyone know of a reference for this?  Does anyone know how
this was implemented (global table as in Lyn's message, or local
association as in T)?
