Nathaniel Bowditch (1773-1838), M.A., Harvard University, ca. 1802.
Among others things, known for techniques in modern maritime navigation and the Bowditch Curve (re-investigated 40 years later by Lissajous)

A self-taught, sea-faring navigator and mathematician, and later America's first actuary, Bowditch appears to have had no formal advisor.
