The MGP extends the line further back from Newton to Michel Chasles, although Newton only received a B.S. at Yale before starting to teach there. It is possible that Chasles was influential as a mentor to Newton, but I have not seen the evidence of this. Chasles' advisor was Siméon-Denis Poisson, and his advisor was Joseph-Louis Lagrange, both at the École Polytechnique in Paris. Lagrange studied at the College of Turin, but started out in a law career. When he switched to mathematics, he began a correspondance with Leonhard Euler, so the MGP identifies Euler as Lagrange's advisor (but again, this was not a formal "student-advisor" relation). From Euler, the MGP takes the line back two more steps, to Johann Bernoulli and then to his older brother, Jacob Bernoulli, all at the Universität Basel.
