Abstract

I cover my life and career, first in Holland during World War II and then in Pasadena, California, after we emigrated in 1959. My main work concerned the rate of star formation and the discovery of quasars and their cosmological evolution. It's a great honor to write an essay for this volume of the . It is primarily an autobiography with an attempt to link my own career to some of the major developments in astronomy.
