History of the Film Plane Indicator

I'm not sure what made me think about this, but I'm curious how the Φ symbol became the standard film plane indicator. I'd also like to know when it was first adopted and by what maker.

My oldest cameras are from the 60's and 70's and all seem to share the same symbol. Wondering if folks with older pieces can help trace the history back further.
