Spending 4 hours to decide who introduced the notion of a "noetherian ring" and when? What I am sure of is that it was between 1940 and 1943, 2nd edition of van der Waerden's Moderne Algebra, and Chevalley's paper on local rings.

Now, my head is full of Basissätze, Teilidealketten und Endlichkeitsbedingungen.
