You might also inquire of the Film Study Center at The Museum of Modern Art. 
They use two KEM flatbeds for study purposes. This is the machinery we at the 
Warhol Film Project use to view the Warhol film collection. They may keep 
statistics on scholarly use, or may have such histories as you are seeking.

Back in the 50s-80s there were some magazines geared to the audiovisual 
educational field (like the one called Audio Visual instruction) that had 
articles about equipment and its use, trends,  resources, etc. They covered 
things like flash cards ,slide projectors, tape recorders, 16mm projectors etc.
Maybe they published articles about flatbeds as study tools.

The Pageant Analyst was by no means the first analysis projector.  The use
of 16mm for motion analysis came about during WWII with the introduction
of gunsight cameras and there were a number of projectors like the hand-cranked
Devry and the Speco which were intended for screening gunsight films one
frame at a time (and which were all very rough on film).

After the war, the use of high speed photography of machinery and of stop
frame photography for analysis of slower processes like traffic and assembly
line work brought about the Analyst.

But... these machines were not intended for editing work.  They were very
different in application than the flatbed.  While flatbed and upright editing
machines did get used for analysis work, that wasn't their original intent.
