Updated to include Dartmouth RR.  Basically, the effect was as predicted.

CEDA Nationals is right around the corner. We have created a google doc to collect t-shirt sizes, accessibility needs, preferred pronouns, and dietary preference. While you still need to register on tabroom to attend it would be great if people could start to fill out this information as well so we can be the best hosts possible come March. Unless people specifically request to eat animals we will provided vegetarian hospitality in order to minimize CEDA's impact on the environment and our world. We will also be working to maintain the tournament at zero waste and will be providing compost bins for everything that normally ends up in a landfill.

You can find the google doc at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1JFzXJUByjLhpK8tIsWnzIC8_3ccX2emHx5Uhywp_QJ4/viewform

There will be a NDT google doc created soon as well. We are very excited to host you all at Binghamton University in March and will do everything to make it an amazing experience. Dan Stanfield & T.j. Buttgereit are working as accessibility coordinators for the tournament. If you should have questions or concerns you are uncomfortable directing to me please feel free to contact either of them.

Kelly is right--even William Trufant Foster's first edition in 1908 (Argumentation and Debating, New York: Houghton Mifflin) has a couple of in-depth chapters on refutation.  P228 is the most concise advice where he basically says you have to know what you are refuting and how you plan to refute.  In other words, say what they say, say why they are wrong and build your argument, say why their potential response is not sufficient, and say why it matters.  Pretty standard even if actual implementation falls short at times.  You could also look at Charles Irvin (1939) in the QSJ (ďAn Intelligent Guide to RefutationĒ), but itís not all that good and a bit condescending.  Iím sure if you are mostly looking for a chronological origin, the Greeks have a few claims as does ancient China.  See Lu, X. (1998). Rhetoric in ancient China, fifth to third century B.C.E.: A comparison with classical Creek rhetoric. Columbia: University of South Carolina Press.

1. State it
2. Relate it
3. Refute it
4. Restate it  

That's the way I learned it, from the annual, topical debate handbooks published in the late 1960s.  Those manuals commonly referenced Mr. Freeley's text, but just as they ushered in the cut-and-paste era of accumulating debate evidence, they, themselves, surely had simply copied it from one another.

By 1980 it was:  
1. State an outline header number or letter (i.e. "1" , "C", "small b", etc.). A paraphrase of the contention, claim or warrant that the preceding speaker may have indexed to that outline header is optional
2. State a person's name and a calendar year
3. Rapidly read aloud a stream of words that include at least two nouns that are relevant to the outline-referenced contention, claim or warrant, and a verb that can be construed to establish a relationship between those two nouns.
4. Inhale

Four-step refutation: where did it first see print? Is it an Austin Freeley or George Ziegelmueller legacy, or does its provenance stretch back even further than that?

William Trufant Foster's Second Edition of Argumentation and Debate (2nd ed.) (1932) has the following:

"In attacking an argument, one should make clear at the outset, as a rule, exactly what he purposes to refute; he should explain as he proceeds just how his refutation is accomplished its purpose; and, finally, he should state precisely the effect of his destructive work and the consequent status of the controversy."

I'm not sure if this is the oldest reference to how to deliver refutation, but flipping through a few texts in my office from the 1930s (courtesy of George Z), this was the first one to include any discussion of the delivery of refutation.
