Do you know the history (esp. first use) of the name "Fundamental Theorem on Symmetric Polynomials" (or "FT of SP", or "FT on S Functions", etc.) for the statement that any polynomial (resp. rational function) symmetric in n variables is uniquely expressible as a polynomial (resp. rational function) in the elementary symmetric polynomials in those variables?
I got a comment from a reviewer (for an article about this theorem) asking for a reference for the name. Every 20th century source I consulted (back to van der Waerden) just presents the theorem with this name. The 18th and 19th century sources I've looked at (Waring, Galois, Gauss) do not give a name (nor do they uniformly articulate it as a theorem; Gauss does; Waring kind of does). I assume the theorem was christened with the name sometime between 1850 and 1950. Do you know where, when and by whom?
