Breslow refers to this approach as the "classical" approach in 1981 so  
I would imagine the idea is so old it could be attributed to common  

He cites HINDE J GLIM 82-109 1982 as using a log-normal mixing  
distribution instead of the usual gamma (i.e. negative binomial) which  
is equivalent to the observation-level random effect with log link.
