Abstract
The paths to greatness in optics are as numerous and diverse as are the roads to Rome. I wish to illustrate this point by citing some of the incidents in the life of one man, Dominique Francois Jean Arago. Although Arago is sometimes overlooked when compiling a list of the greats in optics, his influence on other investigators, his own research, and his lectures have made a profound influence on the subject. I would like to utilize this column to describe some of his training and a later column to describe a number of those many contributions.
