But the "b" usage probably originated with the author of a particular influential North American textbook, and maybe we can find out just who it was.

Why is “m” a symbol for slope?

I don't have much faith in the theory I put forward then - that this m stands for "modulus of slope". It is not known why the letter m was chosen for slope; the choice may have been arbitrary.
