Where can I find authority for meaning of letters in abbreviation"RONR"

Recently I heard that while the abbreviation "RONR" is used to denote "Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised," in fact, the initial letters of the abbreviation stand for "Rules of Order Newly Revised." In other words, the first "R" does not indicate General Robert. Can someone provide a source for this statement?

General Robert is himself responsible for this, in that he referred to his first three editions of Roberts Rules of Order as RO, and his fourth edition, titled Robert's Rules of Order Revised, as ROR.
