G. B. Halsted

G. B. Halsted, geometer George Bruce Halsted (November 25, 1853 – March 16, 1922), usually cited as G. B. Halsted, was an American mathematician who explored foundations of geometry and introduced non-Euclidean geometry into the United States through his own work and his many important translations. Especially noteworthy were his translations and commentaries relating to non-Euclidean geometry, including works by Bolyai, Lobachevski, Saccheri, and Poincaré. He wrote an elementary geometry text, ''Rational Geometry'', based on Hilbert's axioms, which was translated into French, German, and Japanese. Provided by Wikipedia
