Bruce R. Kowalski, founder of CPAC and co-founder of the field of chemometrics, died on December 1, 2012. Although he is often remembered as bringing together the academic talents of chemists and engineers, he also showed enormous vision in his effort to assimilate statisticians and mathematicians into the field. This chapter recalls the journey of one such mathematician-turned-statistician-turned-chemometrician, and is offered in honor of Dr. Kowalski's vision. The piece is written largely in a non-mathematical style and, as such, should be accessible to anyone, regardless of mathematical background.
