Oskar Bolza gave his first lecture to a non-German audience. At Johns Hopkins he gave twenty lectures "on the theory of substitution groups and its application to algebraic equations." This was the first course on Galois theory in this country. It was published in 1891 in the American Journal of Mathematics.
