Our research suggests Sea Wolf, released in 1976, had a High Score feature...

That's absolutely true. There were several games that preceded Space Invaders that had a high score feature. However those high scores were not persistent across time (the machine did not record them for future players to beat them). Sea Wolf, for example, had a high score system wherein the machine had a set of predetermined "high scores". If you beat the predetermined high scores you were rewarded with extra play time, but your achievement wasn't recorded and whatever your final score was, no matter how high, it existed only for the duration of your game.
