There are lots of English, German, Greek, and French mathematicians that I can think of or find, but no one American really sticks out in anyone's mind!

I'd recommend the St. Andrew's Math History page, located at http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/ From this page, you can get to a birthplace map. You can also go directly to a listing of some American mathematicians. That page is http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/SensitiveMap/USA.html Good luck with your report and let us know how it goes! -Doctor Jodi, The Math Forum
