Abstract: George Bernard Dantzig was born on November 8, 1914, one hundred years and two days before the delivery of this talk and the cluster of two sessions in his honor. The sessions are intended to highlight the continuing impact of several areas to which he contributed during his remarkably productive lifetime. This plenary talk will complement these sessions and recount some of the biographical side of this great figure to whom we owe so much.
