My first two publications (both appearing in 1947) were written while I was still a graduate student. However, during the five years after my degree, most of my research was collaborative. This was not a deliberate policy on my part but resulted from my delight in being part of a community of congenial colleagues with shared interests. In fact, these professional relations transcended the confines of joint work and became lifelong friendships. I was, of course, extraordinarily lucky in finding such outstanding collaborators as Henry Scheffé, Charles Stein, and Joe Hodges.
