Not to criticize (because I similarly misremembered the function as a "True Witness"), but the profession cited in Heinlein's novel was called a "Fair Witness." Published in 1961, it foretold the "mentat" behaviors in "Dune" a few years later. Both were seminal influences on the need for precision to permit both accuracy and perspective. Great lessons, here.
