These notes combine an analysis of what the author considers (admittedly subjectively) as the most important trends and developments related to the notion of entropy, with information of more “historical” nature including allusions to certain episodes and discussion of attitudes and contributions of various participants. I directly participated in many of those developments for the last forty three or forty four years of the fifty-year period under discussion and on numerous occasions was fairly close to the center of action. Thus, there is also an element of personal recollections with all attendant peculiarities of this genre.
