ab: 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.
