I added John Vincent Atanasoff as a prominent student of his. Atanasoff discussed this in a Novemeber 1980 lecture at Iowa State University. View at 10:02 into the video of his lecture when he discusses his work with Van Vleck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yxrcp1QSPvw — Preceding unsigned comment added by 165.234.0.138 (talk) 23:45, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Is he the person that the Van Vleck Observatory is named after?--Rayc 23:49, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

I don't believe so. The VVO history page refers to "Prof. John M. Van Vleck," presumably John Monroe Van Vleck. It is curious that the VVO is located in Middletown, Connecticut, the same city in which John H. Van Vleck was born, but it seems to be nothing more than a curiosity. Perhaps JHVV and JMVV were related somehow. -- WakingLili (talk) 15:56, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
