This paper describes some personal background and a few of the technical achievements of Professor Dennis K. McLaughlin, who has been my colleague at Penn State since 1986. I have known Dennis for much longer than this, and I credit him with recommending that I consider an academic career. This paper contains contributions from Dennis’s family, in particular his wife Connie, and from his current and former students and colleagues. I hope that these recollections will make a fitting introduction to this journal volume compiled in Dennis’s honor.
