Summary: This article explores the history of the two results in integer partitions known as Stanley's theorem and Elder's theorem. While history has credited Richard Stanley with the discovery of the results, we note that Nathan Fine had established these results among a host of other partition identities over a decade earlier. In tribute to Fine, analogues in the sets of odd partitions and distinct partitions are presented.
