J. V. Uspensky
James Victor Uspensky (April 29, 1883 – January 27, 1947) was a Russian mathematician notable for writing Theory of Equations. He was born in Urga, Outer Mongolia and died in San Francisco, California.
Uspensky is the one who kept alive Vincent's theorem of 1834 and 1836, carrying the torch (so to speak) from Serret; for more details see the articles on Budan's theorem and Vincent's theorem. For more details on Uspensky's life (in Russian) see the article in http://www.apmath.spbu.ru/ru/misc/uspenskii.html.
